    Poor girl! She may be in shock. keep her warm and with low lights.
    With so many ant bites she is prob having an allergic reaction. Not sure if you can give antihistamines to chickens. i think you can but not sure. Try searching it online.
    Good Luck!

    X2. Try giving her some electrolytes and probiotics to help her with the stress.
