She is a RSL. I've noticed the past two days that she has been kinda lazy. Like always laying down and shutting her eyes. Today is even worse! I tried putting her on her feet but she'd just lay down and kinda go to the side. She is very light and I don't think she has been eating. I seperated her from the others. I need help! I don't know what to do!
UPDATE: She just died. I looked all over her skin and I think she might have had lice. Not sure about mites though.

Had an RSL last year that did the same thing. She laid really good for a few weeks, and then stopped. A week later she was doing what yours was doing and just up and died. We think she was laying internally, but there was no necropsy so we'll never know for sure. One thing I've learned, is sometimes, a chicken just dies.
