Sickly hen

Could anyone give me some advice please? I have a hen of about 17 months, who has suddenly stopped eating and is laying around, and today, I noticed that she is stretching out her neck as if she were going to crow, or in fact, had something stuck in her throat. My five birds have been molting for weeks now, and she is still very bald, and quite red around her 'bum'. I always give them oyster shell and make sure that their container is always topped up with this. I feed them on layers pellets, corn, pasta, vegetable peellings, and they are on grass most of the time. I would really appreciate some help, to see if I can make her better. Thanks for reading this thread.
