Dopey still not well

Dopey is still ill - she is standing hunched in the corner of the run, tail down, wings drooping, pale comb. We are going to put her in isolation in a rabbit hutch and give her some 'rescue food' - hardboiled egg, cat food, poultry spice. She doesn't look very good today, so I'm not very hopeful, but she is still pecking around occasionally. It is tough being a chicken - they hide when they are off colour until they think they are going to die, and then seem to just give up. But sometimes they are mistaken!
