I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi welcome-byc.gif

There could be many factors causing your friends to be skinny. Here are a few to consider ~
Has she been wormed?
What does her poop look like? Signs of blood could point towards coccidiosis.
Is she in a mixed flock? Silkies are often bullied out of food by other breeds.
What is her crop like?
When did she last lay?

Please do drop by the emergencies section too ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

Good luck, I hope she is well again soon fl.gif

No she has not been wormed, from what I know her poop is normal and her hole flock is made up or silkies.
