    Your chicken is doing exactly what my chicken is doing! You should get her to the vet and get her antibiotics imedietly. I have heard that feeding sick chickens tomatoes would cure them. It worked on some of my chickens. I also heard that feeding them garlic would kill bacteria and also worked as a antibiotic. If that does not work, please take your chicken to the vet and have her get some antibiotics. Your chicken probably has upper respiratory infection.

    try collodial silver its a natural antibotic see the mycloplasma thread under chicken health for my info on it , though if shes too far gone she will need to go to a vet but it might be worth a try.
    Apple cide vinegar will also help, put it in her water.
