I was given two silkie hens that were almost a year old about a month ago. The previous owner said they had mites and had been treating them for them so I continued to treat them after that and then one started acting a little weird one day not coming out of the coop and kind of sitting in a nesting box/corner. If I would put it in the yard it would peck around and eat a drink normally so I thought maybe she was broody. She did that for 2 days and then I was looking at her to find she was still covered in mites and she didn't make it through the day. So my guess is she became anemic from the mites. Anyways, I have thoroughly treated the other, bathed it, cleaned out the coop extensively and have been checking the one that lived for mites regularly. She has been acting normal and I haven't seen any mites on her but today she seemed like she was starting to act a little like the other one had so I checked her and found just a few mites on her so I bathed her again but I'm wondering if this is the same thing going on with this one if there is anything I can do to save her if she is anemic. I made her some eggs that she ate and I gave her some spinach and she's been drinking at eating her other food normally today and pecking around. I can just tell something is off with her and want to try everything I can to make sure she'll be okay.
Anyone have any advice or ideas for me?
