You should do a complete exam on her. Check her crop for pressence of food, or being empty, hard and full or soft and puffy. Make sure that it is mostly empty in early mornings. Is she eating and drinking? Feel of her breast are for weight loss, and lower abdomen for any swelling. Check inside her vent an inch or two with one finger for a stuck egg. Look at the skin all over, but especially around the vent for tiny bugs (lice or mites.) Green runny droppings usually is from not eating enough. Give her water with electrolytes and vitamins (such as SaveAChick) and offer some soft egg and feed with water added.
