Are there drakes in the flock?
Overmating can cause this, so can egg binding. I would get her into a tub of lukewarm water and see if she can float safely - do not leave her for even a minute - but see if floating on the water works for her. It may even help her.
Keep her in a safe, clean place with fresh water and food - make sure she can reach it. Let her rest and see how she's doing in the morning.
She could also be egg bound - crush a 250 mg calcium citrate tablet and sprinkle that over some thawed peas or fresh corn, some kind of moist treat. You could also do the same with a Tums. If it's egg binding, the calcium can help.
