    She is going light, and there can be many causes.

    What is the condition of her crop? Vent? Is she/was she laying?

    Any sign of worms or blood in her droppings?

    Get her out of the flock immediately for a thorough erxamination. She needs a warm, dry, draft-free place, possibly a dog cage draped with a blanket. Her own food/water.

    Do you have access to a vet?
