    We have a 7 month old silky bantam who has not left her brooder box in about 24 hours. She has been laying eggs for about 3 weeks. She did not lay an egg in the 24 hours. As of this morning she is not moving much and has not eaten and drunk any water. We made an appointment with the chicken doctor but not until tomorrow at 1:30 (for available appointment). Any suggestions?
