    I have one hen, around 14 months old, who has not been eating for the past two days. She will peck at the food but I haven't seen her eat anything. I suspect she isn't drinking much either, as I haven't noticed. She seems lethargic, walking around slowly or just standing/sitting and her poop is runny and white in colour. I have one other hen who seems fine.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    your chicken is sick. there are many links posted on BYC to help diagnosis. here is one: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

    see
    the tables at the end.

    watery diarrhea is a symtpom of many illnesses. i think white is okay as it is probably uric acid (normal). yellow/green/bloody is bad.
