She's been acting like this for about a month now, she used to be energetic and wide awake. She's about a year and a half old, and the other chickens don't have any of these symptoms. My chickens are Rhode Island Reds. Also they were laying a lot of eggs but now I don't get very many.

I am very sorry to hear about your hen. I am sure someone will have some good advice. My goal in posting this reply is to pop your question to the top of the list and also say:

No, she's not making any strange noises. She's strangley quiet. They are going through a molting stage now though, they've been losing a lot of feathers.

im pretty sure thats what it is. when they molt they get very down and its hard for them so give them some more proteins and keep an eye on her she will get better in a few weeks.
