She has had a MAJOR trauma. She's in shock. Try to get some water into her at least. Let her rest and be very gentle. If there is something to eat that she really loves give her some in a small dish. Don't worry about nutrition right now. She's in shock. Chickens get stressed easily and just need to have time to recover and get some TLC. One of my white leghorns injuries her leg badly caught in a wire dog crate. Took her several days to be interested in food or water. I gently picked her up into a nest box and just gave her a small amount of food not to overwhelm her. Any wounds or other injuries or just scared out of her wits.
