This morning I found one of my Polish chickens in the coop droopy and not standing and 'shivering' like it was 5 degrees out. Yesterday she was fine- she was wet and out in the rain a while yesterday but seemed fine. Any ideas what it might be and what I might try. I have her isolated now, all have been vaccinated and no other chickens are displaying these symptoms. Thanks for any help!

Just an update- I have fed her water with electrolytes and raw scrambled egg from a dropper which she has eagerly eaten. I have her under a heat lamp now and she is no longer shivering, she is much perkier and is now at least sitting down with her head up looking around.
