    Maybe she is low in the pecking order, and she could be getting bullied. Cage her inside with the other chickens to keep her safe, feed her some egg and her normal feed and water, and watch her droppings. Put some electrolytes and vitamins in her water. Worm her and the others with Valbazen or SafeGuard liquid goat wormer, if they haven't been wormed lately. Check her for lice and mites.
