    I have a black sex link that came out of the barn this morning and just hunkered up by the barn and is setting there. No signs of respiratory tract issues , no sneezing or runny eyes. Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

    Hi There,
    So sorry about your sick hen.

    You could put your questions in the Forum Emergency section. I think it would get more attention.

    Hope she feels better soon.

    I don't know much but I do know somebody with knowledge/experience would need more information. How's the weather there? Age? Can you tell if she's eating? If not, try giving her treats. If you can pick her up, inspect the crawl.
    Hope it's not serious.
