She is 4 months.
Haven't seen an egg yet, but hoping to any day.
She is a gorgeous Belgian D'Uccle pullet.
Yesterday she was hanging out alone. Purple comb. Laboured slow breathing.
I tried to catch her, but couldn't. Didn't want to stress her out.
This morning, she remained on the roost when the flock flew out to free range.
Her comb is mostly purple. Her beak remains open. I have felt her throat and crop (empty). Cant seem to find any obstructions.
What can I do?? Please help.

my welbar is doing something similar. ~5 months old, not laying yet. purple comb on back side, but not on the front side. she is not eating or drinking. just laying on the ground and panting with her beak open. one difference is that she is super slow. walks super slow and doesn't try to run away when i try to catch her (she typically flies/hops away). im a bit concerned as well. were you able to make any progress?
