Have 4 hens and a rooster! 3 out of my four hens are sleepy:( got them from a guy who bought out a commercial egg farm. They eat well don't produce eggs and sleep a lot:( I do have one that is producing and very spry! What should I do?

Out to pasture
I wonder if he sold you OLD hens past their laying days and just worn out. Have you checked them for worms and lice/mites - any of which can cause debilitation?

Haven't seen lice or mites, they were really sad looking he said they were in the middle of molting and were missing tons of feathers, the one that is laying looks great and healthy
