    Something is up with one of my hens and i have no clue whats wrong with her.

    -shes a barred rock about 1 year and 4 months old.
    -shes usually a social bird, but now shes being a loner. Shes lethargic, but still quick enough to get away from me
    -she kinda pecks around but isn't interested in the feed.
    -her poop in loose and grey looking.
    -A couple weeks ago she lad an egg in the back yard that didn't have a shell to it.
    -this last week has been chilly and rainy
    -They get a mixture of cracked corn,layer feed, and sunflower seeds
    -eyes are clear and comb and wattles have great color

    Any thoughts on this?

    How does her abdomen feel? If she laid a soft shell egg and nothing since, it could be she is either eggbound or laying internally.
