My hen Becky, 11 months old, has been standing around in the corner of the coop doing nothing with her feathers puffed. She pooped yellow diarrhea and she doesn't want to eat a lot. I brought her inside the house.

I am not sure what she has, some help would be appreciated.

One of my hens had the same Thing! I don't know what it was but she got better. Bring her inside and give her food and clean water. My hens got better over time and I hope yours does too

@Hedwig Chicken , did you ever find out what was wrong? One of my hens started in with the same thing today.

Yes, I think she had internal laying problems.

It was a clear day and all the other chickens were out except Becky. She was standing in the corner of the coop just staring at the wall. The hen would drink water but wouldn't eat. At first I thought she was egg bound (she had stopped laying a week or two before), but then she started laying yellow cooked yolk-like poop.

We kept her inside our house for a week until her poop was normal again. It took her about a month to start laying again.

Hope this helps and may your hen get well!
