    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    How old is she? Was she fatter long before the worming? What did you worm her with? You may need to repeat the worming depending on what you wormed her with. If she indeed did have worms, it will take her a while to recover and gain her weight back.

    We have an emergency section here that you can post this question in as well for more input on this...https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/10

    Good luck with her. I hope she makes a full recovery.

    X2 what is her age? Young pullets and have pale and small combs and wattles. Young roosters have large red combs and wattles. Hens about ready to lay have large red and glossy and combs and wattles.
