    Good morning,

    I have a 1 year old White Rock, who seems sick this morning. Earlier, her right side was puffed out, like she was getting ready to drop an egg and her right eye was closing off and on and walking like she was drunk, taking tiny little steps. A couple hours later now, her eye is totally closed and she's standing still in the grass, puffed out completely, with her head turned to the side like she's sleeping and she's closing her other eye as well, but can still open it when I walk up to her.

    Until this morning, she has been fine, eating great, normal activity, normal droppings, laying often. We haven't fed her anything different from their normal routine. She is our funny girl with the silly things she does and now to see her like this is very difficult. Any suggestions on what might be going on with her?

    Thanks so much.

    At the least, separate her from the flock in case she has something contagious.
