    I came home to one of my BO hens just a little lethargic. Her crop isn't swollen, her vent is clean, no egg binding, comb still red. But she's not running around with the rest and barely picks at snacks. I let her stay with teh rest, but if she hasn't perked up tomorrow I'll isolate her in a cage in the garage for some extra attention.
