    Breed of hen, age, location, these thing all help people to help you. I think we need more information.
    How is her breathing?
    Activity level?
    Is she still eating?
    Pooping?

    Photograph and posting a pic will help at this point.
    It may be a tumor, or other genetic issue. It could also be an infection.
