Hmmm, most likely over mating. Do you have a male in with her? I had on one that I found lying on the floor last year and she wouldn't get up. I took her to my vet. The vet said probably she either fell off the perch or bonked into the wall while flying or the male got too rough. After 2 weeks of force feeding her pain killers and muscle medicines, she could walk again.

Pretty sure Tylan in not the type of antibiotic that a vet would choose because it is not what they call a broad spectrum antibiotic. Can you take her to a vet?

Is she drinking? If not you need to get fluids into her or she will die. Can you post a pictures of her?
