    My RIR is not herself today. She is usually loud and in your face, but today she quiet and sluggish. I haven't heard one peep and that's rare. I found her in the nesting box this morning so I thought she was laying an egg. She gets up and here's this huge pile of nasty green runny poop in the box. She comes out and drinks lots and lots of water, and then poops again (the first picture). I manage to get a look at her butt and I see a string of poop partially coming out of her cloaca, but it looks like she can't pass it. It's just hanging there. She hasn't eaten any food and just stands there. Did she eat something wrong?

    It failed to get my first picture. Here is her poop.
