    If I was told her true age this hen is around 2 yrs old. Since the summer she has been acting old and fragile. She spends most of her time in the coop resting, she has a hard time walking (as if she's aged), she no longer lays.
    I finally moved her to her own coop ans run and no longer let her out to free range because I am sure my young and quite healthy roosters would have killed her.
    She DOES have a good appetite and drinks fine. Her stool is on the looser side and greenish.
    Now my question is this black spot on her face. Is this anything??

    The black spot may be from a peck or injury that has bled. She looks like a buff orpington, but has some odd features, such as an odd parrot beak and seems to be rumpless.
