Sorry to hear about your problem. I am no expert, so i'll leave more comprehensive suggestions to other members, but i would at least isolate her (stops her being attacked by other flock members) and put vitamin supplements / electrolytes in her water. This may help her appetite and give her some much needed vitamins that she has lost by not eating. 

 

Good luck

@youtubeminer  , first thing I would do is stabilize her by bringing her inside and placing her in a warm room. Once warm, I would tube warmed fluids, probably de-worm and start antibiotics. Yellow and/or green poops are never a good sign.

 

I'm available by phone to teach anyone how to tube.
