Hi I have 6 girls and 4 of them are going to be 2 years old in March and two will be one year old in March. I have 1 that is almost 2 is acting funny she won’t eat or run around and I don’t believe she is pooping. I need some advice on what to do.
Quite difficult to suggest what might be going on with your hen - if you provide us some more information that may be helpful.
This morning, how does her crop feel, hard, empty, watery? Reproductive problems such as EYP, salpingitis, or egg binding are common in hens two years or older. Could you feel around her abdominal area - does that feel bloated, distended, or hard at all?
If she's taking on a penguin-like stance, you can try inserting your lubed finger into her vent and feel for an egg.
If she's acting poorly, it may be best to set her up a little pen inside the coop where she can easily get feed and water, and not get pecked on. Try offering mashed scrambled eggs, tuna, or a warm soupy feed and see if she'll take to that. With sick birds, monitoring their weight, so weighing them each morning is always a good idea to track her health.
