    I have a Silver Laced Wyandotte that is very pale in color like a light pink, also i noticed her tail feathers aren't up they are downward. I don't know what could be wrong with her. Also should I let her be around the other chickens?

    Give her a check up. Check her abdomen, see if she's swollen there, or has an egg- meaning: egg bound.
    If nothing seems out of ordinary there, check her crop in the morning and make sure she's empty.

    Bright red combs are a sign of healthy hens, and dark and light combs aren't so good.

    Don't get panicked just yet- just be aware that chickens can raise and lower their tails. Is her attitude any different? Is she lethargic...etc...?

    Make sure she's eating and drinking, too.

    Blessings!

    She has been keeping Her distance from the others and mostly been laying down.
