    ;( She appeared to be puffed up and away from the flock so I put her in our heated apartment in QT. she is eating a bit. Drinking. Not herself at all. Has not laid in 3-4 days. She did stumble the first time I tried to get her to walk outside after being in QT cage. No eye discharge. No wheezing. What do you guys think?

    I will double check in the morning. That could be a possibility. I have never experienced a hen that was egg bound. Thank you for responding.
