Hi everyone,
One of my 4 chickens has been acting strange for about 2 days, and i dont know whats wrong with her. I don't think she's egg bound, and she still eats and drinks well, and she wanders around with the rest of the chickens, but her neck is scrunched in to her body and her eyes are sort of half closed. This is my first time with chickens, can someone plz help me?

I agree, make a thread in the Emergency forum. Have you observed her defecating? Have you noticed a lot of loose feathers or any pin feathers coming in? It may be that she is molting.
In the meantime, I'd give her some Nutri drench or add some Poultry Cell to their water.
Watch for watery eyes, facial swelling, and panting, which would indicate a respiratory illness.
Keep a close eye on her poop, for worm segments.
Best of luck with your hen.
