    One of my chickens is really lathargic. I let them out this evening for their evening grass time and Matilda wasn't very interested in keeping up with the rest, she is moving really slow and doesn't want to do anything. The only thing I did different today was give them some leftover black olives. Could this have made her sick? None of the others are acting any different.
    They didn't eat many of the olives so they must not have liked therm.
    She did eat some dry oatmeal flakes when I brought her in but doesn't seem to want water.

    This is me again, she just laid an egg and it wasn't very warm. This is so wierd. What should I do? Maybe the egg was stuck in her and was making her lathargic. I'll let her outside and see what she does.

    You should give her some yogurt, my girls favor strawberry flavor,but mix it with their dry food 1st. Its full of good bacteria, and when my girls are feelin down, i mix some up, and its a healthy treat, and builds their immune system. good luck!
