It could be a vitamin deficiency. Other than that I have no clue. I would try to force feed her the water with vitamins and electrolytes in it. Just be very careful to just dribble it onto her beak but not into her nostrils.

Others have recommended Polyvisol WITHOUT iron from the drug store. It's a liquid baby vitamin. I am sure you can look it up in the search to get the dosage. I have never used it but have heard good things. I would imagine it would be easier to use to dose one bird.
