HELP! Hen not standing

Yesterday morning I went to let my chickens out of coop. One of the hens was just laying on ground and very drowsy looking no movement. I have separated her and today she is alert but can't stand but is kicking legs. Yesterday was her first day laying an egg in about 8 weeksafter hatching out chicks and has just finished moulting. Any ideas whats going on or what i can do to help?

Hsve you introduced any new birds to you're flock? Any blood in her droppings?

When did she lay the egg? Was it before you found her lying down or after? It might have been stressful for her after so long. How is she now?
