How are their crops? How are their poops? Are they showing other strange behaviours? And what are you feeding them with?

Not sure what to look for. Was able to catch 2 and crop and vent looked clean. Feed is from a feed store for egg laying hens. And supplement ground oyster shell.

So they are still laying but not eating at much(you can tell by the level of feed in feeder?)?
Check their crops at night after dark while they are on the roost.
Look for poops under roost first thing in the morning.
Are they drinking well?
Do you free range?
Is it hot where you are?
How old are they?
