    That almost seems like botulism. Kathyinmo had the exact same issue and there is a thread on it here. Separate her now and see if you can find that thread for treatment options.

    Here it is!

    You can make a solution of a level teaspoon Epsom Salts mixed with 1 oz water and feed it to the bird to flush the toxins out. You will probably have to hand feed the solution to your pullet.​
