    I have a 4yr old RI Red who I noticed this morning was not walking much, when standing her tail feathers are sloped down towards the ground, her belly feels a bit bloated (at least compared to her sister) and is breathing heavily and slowly....could she be egg bound? She's one of 12 so I have no idea if she's laying...thx in advance

    Sounds egg bound, is she walking like a penguin? This is one of the symptoms of egg binding.
