    Thanks. she doesn't really look pale or dehydrated...because she is not eating, that is what makes me think crop problem. Open up her beak and take a good whiff, does it stink? How does her crop feel to you? If that's not it, then we have to start thinking about diseases :(

    Spot on justplainbatty. Check it tonight and then remove her food and check again in the morning. It should empty.

    It is looking a bit better. Just keep doing what you're doing and hopefully soon you can get to the bottom of it. How old is she?

    That stool is nowhere near normal. Have you wormed your hens lately?
