    I have used a blow dryer on low heat on my chickens after I have given them a "bath"... the bath was either to clean a dirty bum, or because I suspected internal laying, which can make them pretty sick (older hens though). Hope your girl gets better, I've never experienced this with a young hen, only my older ones, sometimes some tlc made better though, I fed my girls oatmeal and scrambled eggs, often putting in some natural but harmless remedies, such as colloidal silver or homeopathics... good luck, I'm sure someone with more experience will have more helpful advice.
