    Today one of my hens is waddling around when she does walk, but mostly she just lays in the same spot. My other 2 are running around, scratching, and eating bugs but she just lays there..... What's wrong? I felt her and another hen and they feel the same so I don't think its egg bound.. What's wrong with my baby?

    How is she doing today? Has she laid recently? Has she been looked over really well for lice/mites - they are very tiny, move fast so can be hard to spot at first.

    Hopefully she is back to her normal chicky self.
