    We need a little bit more to go on....
    How old is she?
    What do you feed?
    Is she eating?
    How many chickens do you have, how are they housed...do they free range?
    Is she laying?

    I'm not for sure how old she is but she is laying .I have 4 chickens and the other 3 are acting just fine. They get a layer feed and meal worms and I feed them watermelon or cantalope .they don't free range they have a large coop and run area...thank you for the help...

    Is she lethargic all the time? How is her coloring of her comb, wattle? Are her eyes clear? How has she been about pooping? Look normal for her? Loose, slimy green? How has she been eating? Little? Moderate? Normal?

    Mine do at times plop in the middle of the yard and nap very briefly quite often but their coloring is normal etc. They're just tired of maybe not a good night's sleep and too much playing. Before long, they're back up and at it again.
