    I have been posting about my buff Lily. She is probably broody and is having a 'mini molt' for lack of a better word. She is dri king quite a bit more water than normal for her. She also seems to be more solitary than usual. I worry about her because i lost her sister to Coccoidosis last June. I got 2 more chickens but she is just special. She is only one and a half. Should I do anything? I did put some ACV in the waterer ystdy

    If she's around 18 months old, she may be molting or getting ready to molt.
    They can be quite lethargic during a molt.
