On Wednesday, we brought our bantam "Cubby" (7 months old) to the house because the fluff below her vent was caked up in poop to the point that the eggs were gross and we cleaned her off. She was completely dry when we put her back in the coop Wednesday night. At that point she was laying, acting fine, no problems whatsoever. Yesterday, Cubby layed in a nesting box for about 3 hours but didn't lay a thing. She's not an everyday layer (just about) but always when she's in the box she lays an egg. So we thought this was a little out of the blue for her but we weren't too concerned. We believe she was eating and drinking normally, and that night she slept with her other girls like usual. This morning, she didn't leave the coop. Every morning we open the door to the run and they all come running out. She's acting lethargic, and it's like she's napping and will wake up every few minutes and then go back to napping again. It's been pretty cold here this past week and upon touch she's freezing but she wasn't shaking. We found her this morning sitting by the waterer (where she was doing her constant nap/awake behavior) and when she'd wake she'd drink. It wasn't until a little later we realized that the water was actually frozen and my first concern was that maybe she's dehydrated because we aren't sure how long that water has been frozen. I watched her drink three times and now I realize she couldn't but was trying to. We immediately got the ice out and we were able to encourage her to drink. Not a ton though. Also, her crop is full already this morning and when you touch it you can actually feel the food crumbles (Purina Layena- haven't changed food). It feels soft and not fluid-like or a bubble at all. I've read about sour crop, impacted crop, egg bound, broody, and I just don't know. She's not broody for sure. We really don't think it's sour or impacted crop. She hasn't eaten anything out of the ordinary. She entusiastically ate a hardboiled egg Wednesday night. Is it possible to give them too much scratch and that could be the reason? Would they still lay if they had an impacted crop? Is it possible that maybe she's dehydrated and that's why she's acting this way and was attempting to drink so much this morning? Does anyone have experience with eggbound and had these similar symptoms? I feel like napping every few minutes should be a big symptom of whatever she has! We literally would put her down and she wouldn't move but go right to "sleep." Please, please help. (I'm sorry this was so long I'm just so concerned for her. Of course she's our favorite). I'm afraid to treat her for something she doesn't have and possibly traumatize her even more if it's something simple that she could solve on her own.
