    Phil is acting really lethargic as of late, she was inside and I figured she was cold. Well I brought her outside so she could warm up. She's been out a while and is still acting weird. I also noticed her breast is swollen and there's a slight divot, I'll post a picture. Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Well her breast isn't swollen anymore. And she's acting more normal. I think she might've been cold/thirsty.

    When you say breast could you have just seen that her crop was full that can look kind of distorted when they have eaten a lot. Always make sure Phil has water when she eats.

    Glad to hear she is fine now. How could she have been cold?

    She was inside for a while and it's chilly in my house. I let her outside, she got back to swimming and she's fine now. Back to normal!
