    I think you might be dealing with wry neck. Do a search on here. You will find all kinds of posts with help for this. She needs extra vitamin b and vitamin E. She also needs to have some chicken crumbles. Does she normally have access to layer crumbles? If so, try mixing yogurt, water and layer crumbles...make a mash out of it and feed her that. I'm not sure where you are located but, if you can get poly vi sol, without iron, children's vitamins...give her .5mls per day plus 400 ius of vitamin E daily. Her dropping being green means she is not getting enough food and is starving. You need to get more high quality food into her and more of it.

    Good luck with your hen.

    That is great you were able to quickly find & apply a solution that is helping her! It's always a relief to hear reports of effective treatments.
