My R.I.R hen, Wing Gretzky, is not feeling well! She has been lethargic, won't peck at anything, stopped eating, just not her usual spunky self. She has been like this for about 4 days now, I separated her from the flock 2 days ago. She is in my dog kennel chicken hospital in the house. She had just started laying like maybe a week ago so at first I thought maybe she was egg bound but I can't feel anything, I gave her a tums, a bit of yogurt and a warm soak for 45 min and she passed some clear/white runny poo, no strange smells.... so then i moved to her crop. It feels like an almost empty bean bag with just a teaspoon of what feels like seeds??? It didn't feel hard or full and only feels like a waterballon after she has drank water. I gave it a gentle massage and she pooped again this one was way more stinky but didn't smell strange it was a very dark brown/black colour. She is not coughing or sneezing, no discharge from eyes or nose. She is loosing her balance as well now. I just don't know whats wrong...
Please help! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for a super informative post! Itll be really helpful when someone knowledgeable arrives. Could you attach pictures of her and any poop?
