    take a look at the sticky at the top of this category and reply again with some answers to the basic questions.

    Without more information, it's not really possible to give any advice...

    we really need more information..

    how old is she?
    what is she being fed?
    does she have access to fresh water?
    do you have other chickens?
    does she lay eggs?

    describe the droppings..color and consistency.

    she could have several things going on..
    including heat stroke..
    I am in NC, and it has been pretty hot here.
    but she could have worms, or cocci..


    do you have a feed/farm store near you where you can get meds?
