    Hi there , can you help? Nellie one of our shavers is just sitting and sleeping all day, has been now for at least 2 days, not eating, very watery droppings, all water really, she seems colder than the others, she has just finished moulting, she looks great with all her new feathers, but she's obviously not well, any suggestions?

    Is it possible she's eggbound?

    Feel her abdomen. It should be squishy and not hard.
