2 of my langshans are very lathargic. Will eat and drink. If I pick them up, they are very underweight. About 6 months old. They will actually lay on their side to eat. Some feces around vent, mostly white. Others all acting OK. Egg production has dropped in all birds, but it has been really hot lately.

Jim,

Could be parasitic worms. Check the birds feces for worms, blood or if the bird has runny feces. Start there and post with more symptoms.

Isolate the two birds.
