    I am by no means a seasoned chicken owner. However, with a quick search from the symptoms I came up with this article: the-chicken-chick.com/2012/07/chicken-egg-binding-causes-symptoms.html

    Is it possible to find out if there is a vet who can handle chickens - maybe contact your local feed store.

    I do know that when there is paling in animals, it is usually an emergent matter. I really hope someone can better help you than I.

    Is it really hot? Does she have worms in her poo? Try putting icecubes in the water and offering her some yogurt.

    Im new to chickens, but a nurse. It sounds like she may be dehydrated. You'll have to determine the "why" but in the meantime, try and encourage her to drink. Chickens like cold water. You can also get some electrolytes to put in the water.

    have you tried calling your local feed stores to see if they know of anyone (vet) who could possibly help? 5 of 10 symptoms is a pretty high amount when it comes to medicine...It can be a guessing game because most animals will not have complete textbook symptoms or they will not show them....
