Can you post pictures?

When you say "her bottom has a little green" does that mean poo or is the skin green?

Where is she wanting to stay - the coop, a nesting box, etc.

Any symptoms such as sneezing, wheezing, difficulty walking, watery eyes, etc.?

Since she is a Silkie is it possible she is broody?

What type of foods do you feed?

Can you take her to a vet?

 

What foods do you feed?

Have you introduced any new chickens lately?

Green diarrhea can be a sign of nutrition deficiency, sometimes broody, worms, etc.

Have you wormed her?

Has she lost weight?

Can you separate her (bring her in) so she can be observed to make sure that she is eating her normal poultry food, try wetting it if she won't eat it dry. If she won't eat that, try some tuna, scrambled/hard boiled egg and she if she will take that.  You could also give her vitamins/electrolytes in the water. Hydration is very important. Those may help.
