    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?

    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.
