    When I have seen Cocci I often see that the bird is very lethergic, not interested in food/water, fluffed up and non-social. Has your pullet been vaccinated for marek's? Even if she has, there is still a 10% chance left that she can contract it, but I would tend to explore other possibilities more openly if she is vaccinated.

    So can your girl stand up at all? Have you seen blood in her poop? Have you seen worms? I would try giving some viamins in her water
