My rhode Island white has become lethargic , stumbles , twitches head and has a white thick discharge from her vent area.
she was fine yesterday . Isolated her from the rest of the flock. What can I do and what is wrong with her.

Could she have coccidosis? Is she having any diarrhea? I would check her vent for an egg (gloved finger that is lubricated.) Soaking in a warm bath would relax her to pass an egg if it it present. She almost sounds like she has vent gleet with the discharge. Is she eating or drinking? Here is some info on vent gleet: http://www.tillysnest.com/2012/12/vent-gleet-prevention-and-treatment.html
