    so, she is not laying,(i believe so) she looks sick, she has diarrea the last was green, she walks around like she is depressed, she is very slow and looks droopy. she isn't really eating either, or drinking. She doesn't through I fit when i pick her up. I think I might feel an egg?? idk!! the other possiblity is that she ate the paint off of the garage. some of the other hens do that and I just chase them off and they seem fine. I am new to chickens, anything will help....

    Thanks....

    Sorry your girl is feeling badly. If she is egg bound, you might want to try giving her a warm belly bath, which relaxes her and lubricates things a bit.

    I know you are wanting a quick answer, so posted on your own thread (bumping) but it actually works against you. It may raise your thread to the top, but many of the most knowledgeable BYCers read the list of unanswered threads. By bumping your own thread, you removed yourself from that list. Just a thought.
