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 as there seems to be something wrong with Honey Bun she keeps falling over. Monday she was a bit wobbly, Tue she would wobble over and try and balance with her wing, Wed she will run on the grass then topple over and find it difficult to get up. She can't walk or hold her weight without falling over. 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 Have been to the vet and he thinks that it is physical not viral, injury , vitamin deficiency or a weak chicken that has become stressed with the move.A lot of Guess work and wasn't familier with Mareks. Hoping that it is not Mareks, but she is fine in every way apart from not being able to carry her weight. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any other possibilities other than Mareks.
I have got her on vitamins and have been giving her mushrooms for vitamin D and putting her in the sunshine when it appears!!!
The cockerel has been a bit active over the last weekend, chasing the girls around and trying to tread them, maybe he has been a bit forceful and hurt her.
