We have a chicken who is molting and has lost all of her

Customer Question

We have a chicken who is molting and has lost all of her feathers on her back and neck. Today she started acting strangely. She's very lethargic. She is limping pretty good and has had to stop walking to lay down quite a few times. She did eat scratch, but laid down while doing that. Can you help?
