Silkie that has Down Syndrom? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 

Thank you, oldhenlikedogs! several weeks after I got her she was VERY aggressively attached while I was at work. I came home to find her bleeding out from her head. most of the skin was gone from it. I figured that that had nothing to do with this but it would make perfect sense! Is there anything that I can do to help her? And what do think about the chicks//friends?

 

Thanks again!

My farm:3 dogs (catahula, scotie, and soft coated wheaten),2 mini potbelly pigs pigs(boy and girl),1 goat,1 giant sulcata tortoise,9 hens(of different breeds),2 roosters (father and son), and soon guinea fowl and spring chicks!

I just did what you are doing, help as she needed help, my other chickens didn't bother her either, and she acted like yours does as far as interacting with the others, she got sick around three years old and she passed.

I might let her try with some chicks if you are willing to micro manage and step in if she doesn't seem able to do it, but with mine I didn't think she could do it, mine too would just sit and stare a lot. I always feel sad when I think of her, she was so sweet but didn't get to do as much chicken stuff as her sisters.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

I agree with oldhens. If you're willing and able to step in and help her it might be a good idea to get her a couple chicks.
