I'm no expert, but from what I've learned so far, you should always separate one that's sick from the rest of your flock. I'm in Florida so I'm definitely biased... I say bring her in and get her warm then evaluate her symptoms from there.

Try posting in the "Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures" section.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thank you for this - if you bring her in so you make the box dark and let her sleep or keep it open?

If she is that ill,  I think she would like to sleep in a box maybe on a towel . Would she be in a heated room?  Do you think she is eggbound?  Please post on the "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures thread - in full detail.  Even a photo of how she looks could help with their diagnosis......Hope she can be put right.
