One of my 16 week old EE's is staying real low to the ground. She is keeping her butt and tail feathers down and even walking with her butt low. she is drinking and eating from a squatted position. Her comb is not red....can't even see the wattles ( those are the cheeks right?) her comb is pink and small. there are other girls with much redder combs but they are not squatting at all. Should I be concerned or eggcited?

That does not sound right to be constantly low. Usually they will only sqaut when you approach them/are near them and dont do it for long.
Wattles are the two parts of skin that hang by the beak.

Sounds like she has a problem. She could be eggbound or have another issue. I'd post this in the emergency section so those that are more knowledgeable can help you.
