    Hi there!

    Are you making sure she is drinking water?
    With our heat the can become dehydrated and die from it fairly quick.

    Do you have a feed store near by where you can get some electrolytes for her?

    No... I would guess she is still too young.

    Her comb will get red before she starts laying eggs.
    Do you know how old she is?
    I'd guess no older then 3 months.
