    Hi, I have a pullet who is very close to laying I believe. I am not sure of her age exactly. Anyway the past couple of days she has been lethargic, and today I noticed that her respiration's are quite fast, although she is not panting. I am giving her some yogurt, an egg which she ate most of yesterday and I put some electrolytes in her water. She feels quite light and her feather's all fluffed out. I lost a pullet a couple of weeks ago, pretty much the same symptoms. I purchased them together in the beginning of August. Any idea's what I have happening here?
    Thanks for your help.
