    The pulsing vent suggest that she is having trouble passing another soft shell or shell-less egg or is egg bound in some way. The usual suggestion is soak the hen in warm water to relax her muscles and help her pass the egg. Rub some vegetable oil inside her vent to help the egg come out.

    I'm not sure about the wattle color, unless perhaps she has an infection due to an egg breaking inside her. The droopy tail could be due to exhaustion from pushing. The vent pulsing is specifically associated with problems passing an egg or a broken shell from the oviduct.
     
  5. give her a warm bath... give her save a chick... poultry drench... or even sugar water if you don't have the other 2 on hand... Also, after she passes the egg, you might consider putting her in a darkened cage for a day or two...
