I'm hoping someone can shed some light on our problem with Henrietta. She is about 6 years old and I believe, a Rhode Island Red. For about a month she has been limping a little (legs and feet look fine) and she squats in strange places around the yard or doesn't come out of her house at all. She started laying when warm weather started, but then stopped and hasn't layed for a couple of weeks now. Her comb color is very rich red, feathers are intact, and her eyes look clear. She is very alert and answers us when we talk to her. We tried holding her in a tub of warm water for 30 minutes in case she is egg bound, and nothing happened. Yesterday, she pooped a yellowish, slimy poo; two times, but not much of it. She doesn't have much appetite, but does drink water. There is one other hen and a roo in the yard. They all eat scratch, bread and other household leftovers, oyster shells, and whatever they find around the yard and that's been their diet from the start. Her craw feels soft. Please, can someone help? We love the little girl.
