    First thing you should do is get her quarantined...put her in a dog crate or box, make it comfy for her and make sure she's warm. Try wetting down your crumbles...or make a scrambled egg for her.
    Hopefully someone will help you with the symptoms.

    How does her eye look when it is open? Does it look gray, or does the iris look irregular at all?

    Try reading up on fowl pox...I am not an expert at diagnosing diseases but it is sounding like fowl pox. You might want to private message threehorses. Here's a link to info on fowl pox: http://merckvetmanual.com/mvm/htm/bc/204801.htm

    Looks like fowl pox. Keep her separated. Make sure she drinks and eats. Make her treats such as scrambled egg and chopped greens so she get a lot of nutrition. She might not feel like eating so give her treats like corn on the cob and just a little fruit like a few blueberries or strawberry. Not too much fruit because it will cause diarrhea.

    Vitamins are super important. Go to the pharmacy and get Poly Vi Sol baby vitamins. The formula WITHOUT iron. Give her two drops in the morning by beak and two drops at night. Do this for at least 10 days.

    For the spots you can use a Q-tip dipped in iodine or Listerine to help them heal. Make sure they don't come off until they are ready to fall off. They tend to bleed a lot. Apply the iodine or Listerine twice a day also.
