    I would put her in a dog kennel with a blanket over top.You can try giving her high protein treats like eggs and tuna.Keep her hydrated is also important.You can give water through a eye dropper or 1cc syringe or a another way is to cup your hands with water and then dip her beak in it.Adding Poultry vitamins to her water would be good too products such as Rooster Booster and Sav-a-Chick would be great.Can you take a picture of her poop?Green poop can be a sign that there not eating and yellow poop can be a indication of Worms,Coccidiosis or Egg yolk Peritonitis.When was the last time she laided a egg?How does her crop feel?How does her Abdomen feel?

    Sorry for your loss.

    The only way to know what caused the problem is to contact your local necropsy lab and ask for a necropsy.If you dont have time too look for one you can just give me your state and i will find one for you.
