    My EE Roxy hasn't been herself all day long today...usually shes all loud and running around with the others. But today shes been just standing around acting lazy....idk she just doesn't seem normal. She is eating and drinking....she also looks more round and her tail is more up than usual...

    Is she your head hen, she may have gotten into fight with yours and is like that to show no signs of dominance.

    nope, in fact shes more close to the middle/bottom

    well now shes in the egg box so maybe she was getting ready to lay a big egg or something [​IMG] we'll see how she is after she lays or does whatever in the box....
