    I have a 5 month old, female, bantam, mottled cochin. She seems normal and does all the normal chicken things but if she stops moving she closes her eyes and goes to sleep. This happens quite often. My other bantams don't do this.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Is her poop ok? Any discharges from the nose, eyes? Is she on a good balanced diet with lots of protein? If she really seems ok otherwise, it could be anything going on in her body. Keep watching for signs of any illness that you can catch and treat right away. Good luck!
