Welcome to BYC.

 

Can you give us some more information:

How old is your chicken?

Any sings of respiratory illness - coughing, sneezing, runny nose/eyes?

How long have you had her?

Any new members added to the flock in the last 30days?

If it is a hen, when was the last time she laid an egg?

What does her poop look like?

Any swelling of the abdomen - bloat, fluid filled, etc.?

Any sign of injury, blood, can the chicken walk/stand up?

 

With the information given, the best thing to do is separate her, keep her warm and provide water.  If she is unable to drink, then you need to encourage her to drink or consider tubing fluids into her. 

If you have a vet that can assist you that would be best.
