Cannyou get her drinking some water, and offer some moist feed? Cooked egg or tuna might be good as well. At 5, she could be suffering from a reproductive problem that is making her feel sick. Does she still lay eggs? Can you feel of her crop to see if it is empty, full, hard, or soft? Look for any mites or lice on her skin. Check her vent for any soiling, and clean that off. She might feel better separated in a quiet spot near food and water.

Hi
I have noticed that she has stopped laying proper eggs for a while now and usually only produces very soft shelled eggs which end up being crushed in the coop.
