    That's probably all it is. She's laying, and there will be "juices", and waddles do fold over on some hens.

    Squatting is what they do when they lay. Mine aren't laying yet, but was told it is one of the signs to watch for when they are ready to lay. If you go on youtube.com you can see videos of laying hens and compare to yours.

    If that's her poop, then I'd say there's blood in it and you'd better call a vet. If she is "leaking" this like a woman on her period... I don't know. I don't think that should be happening and would still call a vet to make sure she is okay. She looks very pretty and healthy, but looks can be deceiving. As far as I know, the only things that should be coming out are poop, eggs, and a clearer liquid that comes with the eggs. So... call your local exotic animal vet and see about having her looked at. Maybe something went wrong when she laid her egg. Has she laid anymore?
