    Not sure but you may want to separate her from the group. Do you have a dog crate or something to put her in?

    We brought her inside and we put her in the tub in a nice box. Her feathers on her breast are starting to fall out.Her comb is flopped over. She is pretty responsive,but she isn't her normal self.She just keeps to herself. She's a 6 month old leghorn who has been perfectly healthy up until now.
