When I went out to let the girls out this morning, Columbia (Buff Columbian) as usual was the last one to make it out. As I was looking at her face to face (she was still on the roost) she made this sound a few times that almost sounded like she was trying to poop but just couldn't. As soon as I walked away she got off the roost and came out. Anyone experience this?

If you think she is constipated you can put molasses in the water (it acts like a laxative for chickens).
You can also take a Q-Tip and dip it in olive oil and rub it on, around, and tiny bit in the vent to help her out
