In the Brooder
- Aug 25, 2011
I have a one year old Wyandotte hen who has been looking quite lethargic lately. At first I thought it just took her a little longer to warm up in the mornings, but as the days go on she seems less and less willing to run around. She doesnt seem interested in eating this morning, and just sits in the same place with her head tucked, very fluffed up. She makes little effort to avoid me and my dog. Her droppings do seem somewhat runny. When she DOES move around, her walk looks wobbly and awkward. I dont see any outward injuries, but I wonder if she could possibly be eggbound (though she is not showing much nesting behavior). I tried to feel for a stuck egg but I can't really tell what I'm feeling for. At this point (about 4 days into this behavior) she doesnt seem to have lost much weight. Any ideas?
