Is her crop hard? How does her belly feel?

Crop is full and pretty hard. I can feel the pellets in there. I can kinda move them around a little

Can you post a picture of her so we can get an idea of how sick she looks?

The first one she was having a hard time breathing, the second is after giving her water and crop massage and rest in the bath tub

She looks much better after water, so I would keep giving it to her. Can you get a piece of aquarium air line and a large syringe to tube the fluids to her?

Add some honey to the water for instant glucose and chick boost if you have it. Gently massage crop a few times a day.   Chickens can aspirate when vomiting and sour crop is tricky if that is what this is!  You can try feeding her a little olive oil.

 

You can live days without food, but not water.  Keep her hydrated and warm away from everyone.  Try not to over fuss as too much petting can stress her.  Please keep us posted.
