I have a BO hen that is approx 16-17 weeks old. No visible injuries, vent clean, no fever, checked for pests and is clean. I noticed yesterday that she seemed to be laying down a lot. I went ahead and put her in the coop and noticed her crop was empty. When she was first put in the coop she ate a couple of bites of feed, drank some water and lay down in the corner. If I go into the coop she will get up and walk away from me. This morning when I let everybody out of the coop she stayed in. She has dug a hole under the water bucket and is laying in it. She appears to be unable to get comfortable. She will kinda lean to one side and scratch out more dirt with one leg or the other and will lift her back end into the air for a couple of seconds. I palpated her abdomen and I absolutely swear I can feel an egg shape in there. Is she to young yet to lay? Could she be attempting to lay her first egg and be egg bound? Comb has not changed color but she does keep puffing up her feathers off and on. Any info, thoughts would be welcome. Also she is one of my two smaller hens though not a runt.
