Okay. I did some research, do you think its calcium problem? Because she isn't walking. And also, if she refuses to drink, should I get a syringe some water down her? Or is that bad.
No I do not think it’s a calcium problem.

Can you take a video of her real quick and upload it to YouTube?

No...do not put anything into her mouth.
Hold a small dish of room temp water up to her beak.

Can you go to the feed store and get some Nutri-Drench?

Your video doesn't seem to be working.

She is 4 years old (quite old for a hen), and looks a bit bloated and puffed up. Does she have ascites (water belly)? Compare it to your other hens. It will feel generally quite hard/bloated and potentially hot.
