    I would definitely separate her from the rest of the flock asap in case it's contagious. Are her eyes clear or do they have mucous? Have you added anyone new to the flock recently? Is she breathing ok, and still acting normal? Could be a number of things, respiratory issues, etc. Most respiratory illnesses require a blood test to narrow it down to the exact problem, but there are antibiotics that you can get at the feed store or online that are used for a lot of problems. Tetracycline being one of them. If you could describe in more detail what the symptoms are we may be able to narrow it down or figure something out.

    Is the infection in her throat only or does she have a discharge from her eyes/nose any lesions on her comb or face?
