Have you checked her crop in the morning before she eats to see if it's emptying over night?

What color is her poop? How about a pic?

Where do you live?

Is she laying? Any soft eggs recently?

Is there a drippy discharge from the vent?

Is she making wheezing sounds? Have you opened her beak and looked into her throat?

It's obvious from her demeanor she's sick, but you need to provide us with more information for us to help.

I live in Frankfort, KY, so the weather is starting to get a little colder. She hasn’t laid any eggs as of yet, she was purchased in April 2020. I’ve been out in the coop with her for about 10 mins and haven’t seen her poop at all.. vent has no discharge but she does has some white poop stuck to her butt. I don’t see any discharge from her vent. She’s also doing a weird kicking motion as she walks. what am I looking for in her throat?
