    I have a 2 year old layer hen and just today i noticed that she was acting funny. threw out the day i went out to check on her and she was in the nesting box, i thought she was trying to lay an egg but her bum area was really red and she was pooping milky white diarrhea? She has been drinking lot of water and acting like she is hot. she has no feathers on her behind due to something happening in a old coop. if someone could help me that would be great! shes a sweat hen and nice to all my baby chick!
