    Hi. I have a hen that is acting really strange. She's puffed up and away from the rest of the flock. Her comb is normal and red. She hasn't been laying. I thought at first it was because it's colder outside, but all the other hens are just fine. I thought maybe she might be egg bound because she hasn't been laying, but don't know how to check if she is..She's also not eating..

    If you think she is egg bound wash your hands, lube up with some KY and feel inside her vent. Usually if a chicken is puffed up I separate her in a crate with food, water bedding and a heat lamp on one end until I can find out what is wrong.
