Hello, I have a light Brahma hen that has seemed unhealthy for months. To start with, I started with 2 Brahma hens in my flock of 9. One was robust and heavy and was our lead hen until she was killed by a dog. The other hen seems like she is always the tail of the group. When my ladies come running up the yard she runs a few steps then walks the rest of the way. She became egg bound early on, and I was able to help her pass 2 eggs. She laid for a few weeks,then stopped for winter in November and has not resumed (every one else is laying). To be fair, her sister was not a great layer either, but layed far more that this bird. She does not dust bathe well, and she seems to be the only chicken in the barn with a mite problem (we are treating them all with poultry protect, and every one else is responding well, but the Brahma is still covered in mites). She does not sleep with the other girls: she is either at the far end of the roost or cuddled in a nest box. Her thoughts seem to be "why walk when a biped will carry me? Why jump if someone will pick up? Why bother?" I kept thinking she was fat, but despite her large frame she does not seem overweight. I am still new to chickens, but this one is weird. Has anyone had a similar experience? Is she mentally damaged? Lazy? Is this common to Brahmas? I think I may need to cull her this summer, but I want to give her every chance. She is by far the most personable chicken, but she just seems generally dim and unhealthy.
