Help, I vomited my hen, what do I give her to counter the problem?

    She was acting very lethargic and a little spittle came out of her mouth occasionally.
    Anyway, in desperation, I turned her on her side and gently vomited her. I'd say about a
    cup of yellow sour fluid came out.

    She's a bit exhausted now, or getting worse, I don't know. I fed my chickens yogurt
    when they go a little sluggish and they revived "instantly" . But I'm afraid of trying that
    on this one now, since it might sour her more.

    What should I do?

    Thank you for any and all your help,
    Marc Miller
