    Welcome to BYC.

    How old is she?
    What type of food/treats do you feed?
    Any signs of respiratory illness -coughing sneezing, runny nose/eyes?
    Do you offer oyster shell free choice?
    Any signs of lice/mites?

    It could be due to a nutritional deficiency, lack of calcium and vitamins E, B12 and D as well as phosphorous and selenium or illness/disease. If she is an older hen, it could be signs of internal laying/reproductive disorder like Peritonitis, Salpingitis, tumors or cancer.
