    Hello Everyone,

    I'm hoping someone can help me. My 6 month old Delaware is normally a big eater. She's not been eating at all today. She's been drinking a lot more than normal though. Her stools are mostly runny and yellowish. She's very tired and doesn't really walk around much and when she does walk, she's very slow. Seems like she just wants to sleep. I don't think she's layed an egg for almost two days...she normally lays everyday and sometimes double yolks. I wondering if she egg bound...I soaked her in warm water for 20 mins. basicly until the water was getting cool. And now, I really don't know what else to do to help her. I felt her belly and I don't feel anything but then I have not a clue what I'm feeling for. I have 5 total chickens and she's the only one that seems to be not well. Thank you for reading and any ideas would help.

    Thank you!!! [​IMG]
