    For the past few days, my 3 year old mottled Java hen has had diarrhea and has been very tired. She mostly just stands under the coop with her feathers fluffed up and doesn't have a big appetite. We mite powdered her and it doesn't seem like she has too many mites. I gave her some plain yogurt the other day and she ate most of it. I was wondering what might be wrong with her and how it could be treated? Is it worms? Please help. Thank you.

    Has she been laying normala eggs recently? Hens who suffer from internal laying or other layer ailments can have some of those nsynptoms.
