I have a 4 year old bobwhite hen who has been handing her head down between her legs and sometimes backing  up in to a corner of her cage. A little later she will appear quite normal. What is going on here??

Egg bound ?
Trouble crapping ?

Lots of clean fresh water ?

If the bird was given greens (etc) and didn't have grit, it could be an impacted gut ?
