She might not be getting enough to eat and drink due to being bullied or low in pecking order. But it could be an illness such as coccidiosis. I would place her inside a wire dog crate with her own food and water, but keep her with her flock inside the coop or run. Try feeding some moist feed with a bit of scrambled egg or tuna. Consider treating her for possible coccidiosis with Corid in her water 2 tsp per gallon for 7 days. Consider worming her with Valbazen or SafeGuard Liquid Goat Wormer. What do you feed her?
