    Either the 3rd one is sick or being bullied. Most likely the first one. Any symptoms of anything....diarrhea, pale comb, respiratory ailments, mites, etc...?? Looking sad is an indication of being sick. Has she been wormed recently?

    Let us know what symptoms she might have and maybe we can help her.

    Good luck with your hen and welcome to BYC!

    Or post symptoms, age, etc. on "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures, thread." Have you seen her eat/drink, or are the other birds chasing her away?

    Welcome to BYC. She may be ill, or very likely the other two have teamed up against her.
