    One of my hens today exhibited a behaviour i've never seen before. She's been acting normally for the past few days but I had I feeling something was up. Today I saw her just standing there with her eyes closed. Should I be concerned? Is this a symptom of a disease? Or am I just a really paranoid person?

    Ok well let's have some specification first before we decide if your just easily paranoid or not :p lol just teasing you but on a serious note does she have any respiratory problems? Is she walking really slow? Are her wings droopy? Is she not eating or drinking? Does she have direah? If she was just standing there with her eyes closed it could mean nothing just taking a break from life as we all do at times but if she has any of the things I asked she could be ill.

    No serious issues of that sort; she's still behaving normally, I just hope that wasn't an early sign of sickness. I dunno, my other bird died a month ago so I guess i'm just overreacting.
