    My 5 month old Barred Rock hen was found alone under the coop. She is all fluffed up, pale looking and lethargic. This happened suddenly...no wounds, mites or worms. I have sepetated her and she is eating and drinking.

    Are her droppings normal? Are any other chickens acting sick? She could have Coccidiosis. Lethargy and paleness are two symptoms of Coccidosis. Its more common in birds younger than her, but Coccidiosis can ocurr in birds of any age. I'd do some research on Coccidosis, and see if it fits her symptoms.
