Check out this site-  http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/157442/diarrhea-dirty-vent-in-mature-hens-update

Also, check her crop to see if it is full.  If it is not, then check for worms.

Is she eating and drinking??  I would add some electrolytes to her drinking water.  I have found chopping up fresh garlic and either putting it directing on their food or in their water as well, seems to give them a good immune boost as well.  Apple cider vinegar is one of my best  friends as well....  Hope she perks up soon!!

Agreed.  I forgot about the garlic!
