    We have a hen that in the past 2 days is walking and standing like a duck or a regular bird. Chest up, butt down.
    At a distance, I paniced at first thinking she was a hawk.
    She is eating and drinking, but I know there has to be something wrong. Bottom a little messy, but not bad.

    Suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Have you checked to see if she is eggbound?

    No. How do I do that?

    Is there something I can do if she is?

    Thanks!
