I have a 6 mo lavender orpington who has been acting weird since today our team have changed a lot hear from in 80's to 60's so.. she has been fluffed up and by herself with her tail feathers down might she be starting to lay? She eats and drinks fine and is still hanging with the others

My Bantam did that too, when we went from 70 to 90.. Tail down but still kindda interacted and eat n drink.. I seperated her bacuse when ever their mood is off, there is somthing wrong.. I put mine back too soon after only 4days, and I found her dead. Only sign was down tailed.. Her sibling staryed laying 3days later.. So maybe it was new egg laying related. Though she hadn't layed yet.. I know she wants egg bound, checked. But maybe it had somthing to do with a change in her system

she also fluffs up and rather lay down in the coop or stand in the corner, still digging and eating.. not as often though, i have not supplied calcium yet since my past chickens (some RIR's) did not need it till they started laying.
