    Hello all,
    I'll try to be brief in describing what is going on with my Roo (she's a girl ;) ) in the hopes that one of my fellow crazy chicken mamas can help me...
    She started laying at about 19-20 wks. 2 weeks ago she passed 2 or 3 water balloon type eggs, took about 3-4 days off with no balloon that I found (they free range in the back yard twice a day) and then started layin normally for 6 days in a row. Today I don't think she layed but was fine this late morning around the yard. Put her in her area for a few hours to go out and about and when it was time to let them out for their evening free range, I found her all huddled and puffed and looking terrible. I've got her in a dog crate in the basement and I'm about to give her a warm bath. Also she's wobbling a lot when she walks.
    I appreciate any feedback and am glad I joined this site... :(
