Hen still sick (had a previous post)

She's about 2 yo
Lethargic & Tired - she was very unsteady on her feet, but seems to be a bit better
Limp & Pale comb
some poop stuck to tail feathers - greenish color, but none of the waste in the shower (where I am now keeping her) is green - all white and black, very runny.
crop not impacted (gave a dose of olive oil when we first started diagnosing), not egg bound (that I can tell)
drinking watered down gatoraide (for electrolytes)
was eating scrambled eggs, now not eating
has been inside since Saturday morning, keeping her in the shower, with a towel over half the shower floor.

People posted that it might be worms or mites.

I have been combing here and the internet and I am now more confused than ever.

I can't find any mites, but I honestly don't know what I'm looking for. I don't see any worms in her waste, but again, don't know what I'm looking for...

What is my next step?

I just need a step-by-step "Here's what you should do" guide...

Thank you so much, and Veronica (RIR) thanks you, too!!

most likely you would have seen mites if she has been in the shower since Saturday. I just lost one last night but she was very old. Try yogurt. What I read last night about worms, even if you get her back she will not be a good producer. But, I kept a chicken for over 10 years! I knew she wasn't laying but she was my friend. Good luck.
