    Usually roosters are top dogs and get to eat lots of food and do not have a life of producing eggs... Is she lower on the pecking order? Do the other hens chase her away from food and water? Anything else wrong with her? Usually if a chicken looks unhealthy I stick it in a crate with shavings, food and water to monitor it's droppings and food intake.
