sick hen

Asked August 28, 2013, 8:50 AM EDT

She seems not to be eating, but she is drinking. Her feet are white. She is 3 to 4 years old, and she lays around a lot and hasn't been laying eggs. Every other time I clean the coop, I spray it for lice and mites. We did get 12 new babies, so the total is 16 hens. What should I do with this sick hen?
