    My 9 month old EE laid her egg today,but is listless and not eating.She is always the first to eat.She was just sitting on the heater.The other 2 hens seem fine. I cracked her egg opened to see if it look strange,it did not.I flushed it anyway.She is now in a dog crate in my den..Not sure what to do next.If shes not better tomorrow,I' take her to the vet.It will be a sad day if she can't recover.She was 3 days old when I got her.Shes my fav.

    Has she been on a worming program? If you listen to her chest under her wing... do you hear any wheezing or crackles? Any discoloration in her throat, around her eyes, nares? How is her poop?
