My Hyline chicken is only a year old and she firstly started losing feathers around her neck and chest, then I noticed that she seems to be losing her voice, so I took her to our local vet but she didn't know what was wrong with her. (Waste of money! Don't think she knows much about chickens.) For the past two days she has now started laying very white eggs. Her crest is still bright red and she seems to eating well, although the vet told me that she was very skinny.

The vet suggested I de-worm her and dust them for parasites. I have 3 other chickens and none of them seem to be affected.

Any idea what could be wrong with her?

The vet said she could give me a referral to a bird specialist but unfortunately we just don't have the money to afford that :(

I think you should do as the vet suggests and worm and dust them all. Usually some are more affected than others. See if that results in any improvement.
