    My lovely Columbian Rock is lethargic...stands with her head scrunched down and won't leave the run. She's drinking a little, haven't seen her eat today, and happy to doze. Was fine 3 days ago but has grown less active over time. Cool temperatures and no change in other 2 girls. Is she sick or just going through a stage toward egg development???

    Has she been wormed and/or have you seen any worms in her stools?
    You might contact a moderator and asked that your thread be moved to the emergencies section.
    Good luck to you.

    I am unsure how to do that...will look around. No, she hasn't been wormed but there are no visible worms in her stool. Thanks for the reply.

    Quote:I'll ask a moderator to do it for you. If she's not too worn down from illness I would give worming a shot.
