Jewels Is Sick~ Chicken Advice Needed

I noticed that Jewels has not been acting like herself. She has lost the feathers on her neck and tail. I was sure she was just molting but they still have not returned after about a month. She has been laying in the nesting box for two days and will not get up. I have researched all I can find. I checked her for parasites but found none. I treated her anyway. I think maybe she has come out of a molt but may be having a hard time laying.  I checked her for a bound egg but I can't see one. I have her on the porch in a kennel and have started a round of antibiotics. All chicken advice is welcome. She is acting a bit better but still laying around. I am not sure what else to try.  My Chicken Farmer Friends~do you have any advice?
