    She's a 9 month old EE. She has been walking around with her head tucked in for about a week. Even when she is perched she keeps her head tight to her body. She is still eating, not sure if she is laying. She only extends her neck when she is spooked or running. Any ideas anyone?

    Try giving her some raw apple cider vinegar in her water to give her a little boost and see if she perks up.

    What does her poops look like?

    How old is she?

    Has she been laying eggs previously?
