    Get some electrolyte water into her by dipping her beak, holding a spoon to her beak, or with a dropper giving a few drops at a time to rehydrate her. Also place her legs in a pan of cool water in case of heat exhaustion.

    She does not have heat exhaustion. That I know. I would say its something else all together, and no not egg bound, she has always been a problem layer and I know how she acts with that.. Ty for the advice though

    Goober passed a little while ago. I guess she was too far gone.. My heart is broken beyond words.. I can't believe I wasn't able to save her this time... She was always my little problem child with the biggest personality...
