    I'm guessing she picked up something at the fair. Did you return her to your flock mates when she got back, or have you kept her quarantined? Check her for mites. Otherwise, I have no suggestions.

    You'll probably get a better response if you post on the Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures section.
