I'm sorry to hear your hen is not well. I would suggest posting in the section for medical problems,so that you get a more informed response - see here

And welcome to BYC

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

Wonder if she has a neurological problem or  vitamin deficiency. Molting can be very hard on birds, and they often need extra protein and other treats  to help grow back their feathers.

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
