My wayandotte hen had been closing her eyes slit and her comb has lost its color, she is always tired, in active and weighs less than a pound. I separated her from the rest and she's been eating and drinking but no improvement . Why?

Worms probably. When have you wormed her last?

Yes, well, chickens live on their own poop. Assuming you clean out the cage once a week, they're still living and walking on their own poop. That breeds parasites.

Worm them!

Garlic water works(1:10 juice to water ratio), I've known people to use beer at about the same. It doesn't have to be non-organic to be effective.

OK, I can respect that. Sounds Like you better get busy with a natural wormer---if its worms and for sure sounds so to me----you do not have much time. Good Luck
