Hi I think my chook is sick. She is possibly 18 months old. She's lethargic, crouching down sort of fluffed up, looks larger than normal. She's not eating (I only have 2 so know how much food I top up each day) but have seen her drinking. I don't think she's pooping much either. They both are usually lively and follow me around, she is not :-( It's been 2 days she's like this.

Visually inspect your hen for lice/mites, especially around the vent area. Consider worming her, and your other bird as well.
