    Cheep, my 3 yr. old BR is under the weather and I need your help.

    She has been moving a little slower, but was still getting around. If I went out with treats she was running just as fast as the rest of the girls.

    The past 2 or 3 days I have noticed her looking a little wider around the leg area when looking at her from the front. Then I have noticed that one of her feet is turned in a little and dragging her toes when she takes a step. I noticed the feathers below her vent getting a little yucky. When I picked her up and felt between her legs, it kinda feels like a water balloon. I compared the feeling to the other BR and they don't feel like water balloons. Any ideas? Today, she is just staying in the coop, laying by the feeder/waterer.

    Worried about my Cheep girl.

    Is she laying still? or perhaps egg bound?
