I have learned a lot of info from this wonderful site over the past few months leading up to me purchasing my lovely Trio of Silkies. Thanx for all the valued information everyone!!!
I finally got my trio 3 weeks ago from a reputable breeder. Sweetie Pie, Honey Bun & Punky Popcorn are Miniature Bearded Silkies, they are cute little balls of flufff, they are adorable and make my heart melt!
I am feeling rather sad today as there seems to be something wrong with Honey Bun she keeps falling over. Monday she was a bit wobbly, yesterday she would wobble over and try and balance with her wing, today she will run on the grass then topple over and find it difficult to get up. I have read that these symptoms could indicate Mareks Disease but am praying that is not that. She is eating, drinking and poop is fine.
I don't want to rush to the vet as they may just assume that it is Mareks and put her down. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any other possibilities other than Mareks.
The cockerel has been a bit active over the weekend, chasing the girls around and trying to stride them, maybe he has been a bit forceful and hurt her.
PLEASE can anyone offer me any help or advice?
I could post a video if that will help
