    About 5 days ago I found her sitting alone in a corner of the pen her tail down and poop running out of her end. I thought she was egg bound again cause she had the signs of it but there was no egg in her. I had her inside for a couple day and she would eat a little and drink a little. She never really got better but seemed perky and so I put her back with the others. She still has her tail level with her back...walks around slowly and has very runny white-ish poop. But other then that I don't know whats wrong with her. She looks really good....oh and she doesn't perch at night she lays on the ground of the coop. She still hasn't laid any eggs since then. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.

    Is she thin? She may have worms?
    Can you still not feel an egg?

    I went outside about 30 min ago and it was still pretty bright outside and she was already in the coop laying on the floor. She slowly got out when she saw me coming. I looked her over and her but looked kinda blue or purple.
