    Hello and [​IMG]

    How's her poops look?

    How's her weight? (Can you feel her breast area and get an idea of whether she has good amounts of breast muscle or not?)

    Also, what specifically is she doing that makes you think she's weak?

    Best wishes.

    Welcome to BYC. More information would be helpful including her age, and if she is having other symptoms such as diarrhea. Worms or coccidiosis can make chickens very weak. Mites and lice can too, so checking the skin all over, and especially under the vent for eggs or tiny bugs would be good.
