Please help.... one of my RIR hens is acting strangely. She is usually very active, but for the last couple days she is lethargic. I have seen her drink yesterday and today, but not eat. This morning she was still in the coupe when I went out to feed the flock. Yesterday she laid an egg but it was out in the pen, not in her box. I have not seen her lay an egg today. All the other girls are acting normal. Only other thing I noticed was her poo was somewhat watery. Eyes and nose are clear. Nothing differerent that I can see anywhere else. She won't let me pick her up. Any ideas? Should I seperate her out from the rest or will that cause too much stress on her? Should I medicate their water? I have no idea which way to go...How do I know when she is in real trouble?
