There are links in the bottom of my post (in the signature) that will allow you to hopefully determine a disease/condition based upon the symptoms, and then research what you find for further information and possible treatment(s).

Running down the list also helps folks in knowin' what to look for, and possibly better spot other symptoms (which helps other folks, like me ~'-)

A few possiblities ...

Mottled, red and white margins ... Frozen
Eruptions, nodules ... Fowl pox
White, scaly, powdery ... Favus

Egg bound? It is hard to guess with out pictures and more information.We can only guess. No one is examining the bird.Isolate her, keep her warm, make sure she has water. Check her for mites, take a picture of her vent area. Is she loosing weight? Is she over weight? Does she eat and drink?
