    Could be worms... get some poultry wormer (your local feed store should have it) and dose her up.

    Also, make sure she's eating... give her her own little cage for a while, with her own food and water bowls. Monitor how much she eats. If she doesn't eat a lot or at all, she's sick. If she does eat and doesn't gain weight, it's probably worms.
