    My two year old hen was on the nest yesterday for a long time. I checked on her several times and finally took her from the nest. Two eggs under her. She pecked at me, etc. and went straight back to the nest when I turned her loose. This happened three times. Broody, right? Today she is lethargic, droopy wings, dull eyes. Her vent is contracting and thick, clear mucus is draining from her vent. Her poop is runny and yellow. Not eating, etc. She is clearly in distress:([​IMG]. What do you all think is going on? A little help... Ellen

    There is a sticky at the top of the page with questions- it'll be easier to help you if I knew breed, age, feed, etc. Good luck with your girl!
