    I'm sorry, I can't be helpful. Are the rest of your birds okay? Has their food been changed? Is the weather extreme where you are? Plenty of water? Could she have gotten into anything poisonous, or moldy? Just trying to ask some questions that might provide more clues...

    I have no clue, but could she be egg bound? You said she isn't laying yet, but maybe she should be? A serch for egg bound hens here should help....good luck.

    Can you maybe bring her inside and keep her in a dark quiet place overnight to observe her better and to allow her to rest. I would also give her vitamins and electrolytes to see if that perks her up. Do you know if she is eating ok?
    How does her crop feel? Any mites/lice? Do you know if her poop looks normal? Has she been wormed? If you have any other info it might help us to narrow this down for you and bringing her inside will let you see some of these things better. I hope she gets better soon!
