I have a yr-old Black Copper Maran. About a month ago she started walking around like she was sitting down. She seemed to get around fine and was eating and drinking. I moved her to a chicken tractor by herself. I felt around on her abdomen to see if I could feel any protrusion or egg-like lump. I've never had an egg bound chicken or any other kind of illness. I'm not sure I know what I'm doing! I've checked her for lice/mites and she's fine. No respiratory symptoms. She's still walking that way. Her belly and back side are now bare and red but I think it's because she's dragging them on the ground. I checked her again today and don't see anything obvious. She's still eating and drinking. What in the world is going on with this chicken? If she was egg bound or something like that, would it have lasted a month? I love this little rascal and wish she would get her bottom up and stop acting like a penguin. Any thoughts?
