I have a small black easter egger (not yet laying) amongst a flock of 12 birds (6 Sexlinks) .. She is the smallest of the bunch and she has recently become very sluggish / sleeps a lot during the day etc .. she eats and looks healthy .. buts seems to have really slowed down ..

Any ideas ? suggestions ?

Thanks in advance

How old?
How long have you had her?
Photos of her and her poop?

Check to make sure her crop is emptying overnight and look her over for lice/mites.
I would watch to see that she's eating/drinking really well and not being kept from food.

Coccidiosis could be something to consider too.
