    This hen was on the roost yesterday around 3, looked sleepy, and is still up there at noon the next day... Her comb is flopped over... I've never had a sick chicken, so I'm not really sure what to do. There are 21 others.

    Can you take her to a vet?

    What is the weather like? Do any of the others seem sick? Are the eyes cloudy/bubbly? Is she breathing normal? Eating and drinking? What are the housing conditions? Is she laying eggs? Breed? Age? Vaccines? We need this information to help.
