Very sorry to hear about your hen! I wish I could help more but I'm not very experienced along these lines. If I were you I would post this in the Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures forum and look to see if there are any helpful articles in the http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/maintaining-a-healthy-flock. I hope your hen pulls through all right!

Please post in full detail at  "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures " thread.   She may have gapeworms,  or crop issues or something completely different.  You want to treat for the  correct problem, or it won't help at all.

 

You might try gently wiping the back of her throat with a  q-tip.  If it comes out a bit bloody or worms on  it,  you have your answer about gapeworms.
