    HELP, HELP

    Not sure what happened but she has it so bad I feel I should put her out of pain. She is not tame, I never get to "look" at her. Today I got to walk up to her and pick her up. She is Blind!! I need to treet both coops and her............

    ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED

    Unfortunately that can be a common issue with silkies. You will need to treat her with a pyrethrin based powder or spray as well as doing the coop. I prefer the powder. I use it in the nestboxes under the bedding and I dust all roost cracks.
