Pardon my terminology.  I'm a newbie chicken owner.  I have a 12 month old hen that was laying and has recently stopped.  I noticed about three days ago that her comb was pale and she just looked punk.  I added some vitamin and electrolyte supplements to her water.  Today when I picked her up she has lost significant muscle mass around her breastbone.  I'm going to isolate her from the flock and deworm but beyond that I don't know what to do.  I have an appointment for monday with the vet.  Any suggestions are appreciated.
