    Try giving her plain yogurt with her water...sounds like she has probably eaten something that was a little toxic. Chickens who free range will eat all kinds of things like plants that are toxic.
    I would just keep her seperated and watch her closely.
    The yogurt will help. Try mixing it with peas and corn....my chicks love peas and corn...Hope she come out of this funk she's in...
