My chicken is acting very weird she has her tail down and she walks very very slowly today she fell off the roost and didn’t even flap her wings she just spread her wings and fell and hit the ground tonight she was not on the roost she was tucked in a corner she has been acting like this for a little while now I read that it could be a clogged egg but I’m not sure she also seems to have like a purpleish tint at the tip of her comb but I’m not 100% sure that that’s the case please let me know if you can help me

Welcome to BYC. So sorry about your hen. How old is she? Does she lay eggs? Her upright posture, tail down, and acting lethargic seem to point to a possible reproductive problem. Has she been eating and drinking? I would try to give her some liquids orally, and offer some watery chicken feed, bits of scrambled egg, tuna, or a little cat food.
