    Have you checked to see if she is egg bound or not? Try looking at her vent area to see if it looks normal. It could be one of many issues, but I'd start with looking into this first.

    I have a little bantam hen that is the same way now. She used to be top of the flock but now hides under nest boxes, so I make sure she has food and water there and just keep an eye on her. Good luck with her.

    Check her all over(especially around the vent) for mites. I would offer her some chopped up grapes and see if she takes that. Also cook her an egg and/or rice for protein. I agree in checking to see if she is eggbound. Good luck! [​IMG]
