In the Brooder

Hi everyone! So I have a hen that’s just over a year old, shes having terrible sounding gurgling noises come from her throat & mouth. She has no discharge coming from her eyes or nose. I noticed a few days ago while she was free ranging she had her back end down while grazing, and when she tries to jump up she’s very weak in the legs and sometimes falls over. I picked her up and she immediately sounded gurgly, I lifted her back end up higher than her front half and suddenly there was clear discharge coming from her mouth - which makes the gurgling noises much more aggressive. She’s still eating / drinking - I don’t feel anything firm in her throat or abdomen and she doesn’t smell yeasty. Any thoughts from the pros of what could be going on with her ?
