    her name is Lacy and she is 1 year old and her comb is layed down and floppy and she just lays down, this morning it looked like she was sleeping eyes closed and everything but when sombody was near her she would roll her neck like she was stretching it. then i went in and picked her up and i set her on a table and she just layed right back down, then, i checked to see if her vent was closed off and i found a glob of poo, not cloggoing but it was stuck, so i went and got the scissors and sniped it off, then i looked at her bum and it had yellow crusty stuff around it, i hope shes ok.

    i purchased her in march and she has layed 3 really big eggs since then
