What breed is she? During hot weather they will drop their wings to improve air circulation. Make sure you handle her to eliminate other possibilities. Is she in good condition? Poultry can look okay to the eye, but when picked up are all feather and bone and very ill. The two ends (head and bum inspection) are also good indicators for a healthy bird. Having a photo could also help give us a better idea.

MONEY can't buy happiness....but it can buy CHOOKS, and that's pretty much the same thing
