She may improve with a little warmth and tlc but if she doesn't then you'll have to take her to the vets for some antibiotics - good luck.

Bumped you over to the hen house, all the poultry peeps will see it better in here.

Welcome to the forum by the way  :D

Hi and welcome. I agree with Rubelite. You should see improvement in a couple of days, so could put her back with her pals, if not better by then, check with the vet, but maybe she could go back with her family and they can ALL have the anti-b's.   Good luck  :)
