    One of my bantams just laid a completely shriveled egg while sitting out on the chicken jungle gym. She doesn't look quite right -- lethargic, droopy tail, labored breathing. I am going to check her now to see if she feels like her normal squishy self or not. Does anyone know these symptoms?

    Edit: her abdomen is soft. But she is definitely a little down. I don't handle my chickens so they are pretty opposed to being picked up. She was fine with it and is sitting in my lap w/ a heating pad.
