    We'll need more information to guess what could be wrong with your bird.

    How old is she?
    What are her droppings like?
    Is she eating or drinking anything?
    Does she seem to be particularly light/bony?
    Does she have any respiratory signs (discharge, sneezing, etc.)?
    What feed are you feeding her?
    Does she just seem weak, or is there something physically preventing her from moving well (like a leg deformity)?

    I would probably start out by isolating her in a warm, clean place and giving poultry vitamins/electroytes, by eye dropper if necessary.
