I have heard silkies are difficult to raise. I have raised 6 now to adult age. I have one that has wry neck, one with a weird looking comb, and three that are showing symptoms of illness, and one suddenly died after falling on its head. The ones that are showing illness are not eating, drinking a lot-to the point of spitting up liquid, nasty poop smell, and quite wobbly. Ive started on vit/min boosters plus med for coccidiosis. The only things I can think of that might have caused the illness are below:
Can chickens get Rust poisoning?
Can silkies get too hot?
Is cocci present in all chicken poo?
what about E Coli?
