    One of my buff hens is acting strange: laying down and breathing hard with her mouth open. She moves slow-like and seems distant from the flock. Could this be the symptoms of a disease or could it just be something minor like a belly ache? This is a video of my chicken that day. However, when I checked on her today, she seemed fine. But still, I don't know what could have been wrong with her. Hopefully it was nothing serious... PS I know the video quality is bad and the screen won't fit in the "post square". :/
