    Teeny isn't acting right today. She is usually very social. Today she is withdrawn, very temperamental, sluggish, and is puffing up. She is only about 6 months old...my whole flock is around that age. We haven't had any eggs yet, but I don't think they are old enough for that yet. I am worried about her, and the rest of my flock for that matter. Any help would be great.

    Coccidiosis could be a problem--symptoms are pufffing up as she is doing, lethargy, poor appetite, diarrhea, and ruffled feathers. Corid (amprollium) 2 tsp of the liquid per gallon of water for 5-7 days is the dosage. Worms cold also be a problem. Check her for lice and mites.

    She is still eating well, and seems kind of bound up, so I don't think that's it. Thank you though, if I run into that issue down the line now I will know how to fix it.

    She died this morning. I still can't figure out why.
