pour on Ivermectin is good.  Other wise use the paste types of horse, goat, cattle, and swine dewormer.  

 

Here is a link to dosages.  

Ivermectin is no longer an effective poultry wormer, so I would not suggest using it. If anyone is interested I can provide like to various studies and necropsy pictures that shove just how ineffective it is.

So a normal weight for her was probably 5-6 pounds? How much do you think she weighs now?

@julieseawel , you might want to get some Valbazen (albendazole) instead of Safeguard (fenbendazole). It's a better wormer and it easier to use.

Sorry to hear what I was sure would happen. Now is the time to concentrate on the rest of the flock. Good luck.

Sadly very few can recover from being that thin, and they are so good of hiding illness until they're past the point of no return.

 

Now would be a good time to give all of them a thorough exam.
