    She could need an antibiotic. I'm new though. Maybe someone will chime in with more experience. I had one that stood still a lot and had one eye closed. Someone will chime in soon

    So granny said since her comb and legs are purple it could be lack of oxygen or the liver she thought.

    Keep her warm with access to water and food... I give my girls gaterade if they appear to have a cold. Try scrambled eggs for food. And check her for mucus...... Or irritated throat and other symptoms you can share so someone might have input on if she needs meds.... Also check her vent and area for any problems there.

    She died last night must have shook a lot I hand her in a large dog crate and her bowl of water was spilled over and she was upside down In the corner anybody got an idea as to what it was and if it's anything to worry about with my flock. I put her in seclusion last night

    Oh no. I'm am so sorry to hear this. Wish I could tell you what it was. I would definitely keep an eye on the rest of your flock just to be sure. So sorry. :hugs
