    She is also not free ranging as much as she the other four hens anymore. I notice her sitting under a tree while the others are all together rooting about ten feet away from her. She is still laying a big brown egg every day and comes running ONLY when I throw the mealworms out otherwise she turns her nose up at scratch, egg shells, leftover biscuits, rice, other treats.

    It's eerie to see her just standing there and seemingly sleeping in broad daylight standing up--not all day but often. She still drinks water with the others but I noticed last night she roosted down on the bottom/lowest shelf of the coop next Marie Antoinette our white silkie who is the lowest in the pecking order within the flock.

    Any ideas, I am concerned she's ill but I'm not seeing what's wrong?
