    Today one of my four girls started acting very lethargic. The doesn't have any discharge and her eyes are clear. She was moving very slowly and wasn't following the rest of the flock like normal. Her crop is full so I know she has been eating today. Also while walking around she layed a soft shelled egg right on the ground. Then she just went back to not feeling good. I added oyster shell to her diet. I hope that helps. But doesn any one have any ideas what it could be other than low calcium? I haven't wormed them yet. I was trying to go the organic route. But do you think I should go ahead and worm the flock? Please help! :-/
