My chicken has been a great layer but recently she stopped laying and her tail dropped, she now walks really slowly tail down as if she is in a lot of pain I gave her a warm bath to relax her muscles but nothing happened (although she did enjoy it). On a normal day she will sit in the same spot for about 3 hours, I don't know 100% what is wrong because apparently they pass away within 48 hours untreated but this has been going on 5-6 days.

Does anybody have any ideas what might be wrong as she is a loved family pet!

Thanks!
