    Do you have other chickens? Is she the only one sick? Was she behaving normally and eating and drinking well before? How long has she been like this?

    Edited: I forgot you said the others were sick. Check the video at this link and see if this is how they are acting. If it is, here is a list of meds that will treat the infection.
