My chicken is so thin i can feel every bone in her she is eating & drinking fine
I would guess she has "company", worms or lice/mites or both. Check under her feathers for little crawling things near the skin, check especially behind her neck, under her wings, & around her vent. Check her poop for worms, but even if you don't see them she still may have them inside.
You can powder her with 5% Sevin Dust or some other insecticidal powder that's safe for use on dogs. You can give her a vermicide like Wazine or Ivomectin for the worms.
I hope she gets better.
I would give the chicken some wormer to be on the safe side because I had the same thing happen to my Frizzle she died and now my prized rooster is losing weight too.
