This is caused from a internal infection; she is a young hen by the looks of her comb. She is likely eggbound and if she cannot pass the egg she will
die. Her stomach looks swollen so likely infection is already bloating her. She is in pain and will die.
The humane thing would be to dispatch her immediately. Hens who become eggbound typically repeat this over and over if they can be helped each time
it occurs. It is a sad thing.
Bless her life with kindness and consideration, help her pass on with compassion. May Spirit have already taken her on her journey home.
