I have a 15 month old Buff Orpington. She’s always been the most outgoing. This morning she didn’t want to leave her roosting bar, doesn’t walk around and acts extremely lethargic. I’ve separated her into a small cage. She looks completely normal.
She doesn’t want to eat anything, she’s taken a couple small drinks. She’s been standing all day, but now laying down and it looks like water dripping out of her beak?
Any advise will be most appreciated!!!
Thank you.

She hasn’t lost weight, I’ve checked and never seen evidence of lice/mites.
Never been dewormed;but I check poop regularly and never have seen any worms?
I’m trying to feel her abdomen now, but not sure what I’m feeling.
It’s possible her crop is big?
Not sure about feeling for an egg...
Thanks so much for trying to help me!!!!

You're not going to see worms in the poop. Why would a parasite want to leave its host?
The only time you'll see worms in poop is if there are too many in the guts and there's no other place to go except out the rear end. Or maybe one died of old age and was excreted.
