2 days ago my sweetest hen who interacts with me the most, started acting funny. She’s all puffed up and not wanting the other chickens around her. I thought maybe she was getting broody for the first time, but last night she came out of the nest box and just sat around. She seems very lethargic. She did go in the coop, but perched alone all night. She did come out this morning. She’s eaten and drank a little. I have not seen her poop. I cannot feel an egg. I gave her a warm epsom salt bath (she seemed to like) and now I have her resting on a heating pad… see photos. She does act like she’s going to poop and seems to strain and then gives up. What else can I do?
