    Tonight out of the blue my only barred rock was sitting on the coup floor when she usually roosts. She seemed to be breathing heavier than normal. Her vent was slightly open and her wattles were purplish. When I cleaned the poop board yesterday there was a yellow dropping, not runny but light yellow. I have no idea if the dropping was hers (we have 14 chickens). Any ideas?

    How does her belly feel? Is it swollen and/or red?

    Sorry not to get back sooner but she died. It was very quick.
