911 sick chicken

I just notices one of my silkies laying face own in the coop. Her head is floppy and breathing heavy. There was plenty of water. It is 90 degrees out could she be over heated?

Bring her in where it is cool, and make her drink some water with electrolytes, or give her Gatorade or Pedialyte. She may well be overheated or dehydrated. Lots of shade and extra water pans are necessary in that heat. Refill the water at least twice a day or add ice to keep it somewhat cool.

My silkie is breathing heavy. I gave her Gatorade and she has been in the house for over 2 hours.

Could she be egg bound?
