I have a Silkie who is 12 weeks old and has always seemed to have problems. She (I'm assuming it's a she but could be a he) has always been at the bottom of the pecking order and is about the same size now as she was when I got her around 4-5 wks. of age. A few weeks ago I decided to move her from the large flock where she seemed to be stressed at the most and put her in with some babies we have in hopes this would help her gain some status and de-stress her. While doing this I found that she had a bad case of pasty butt, which I feel so bad about missing, and have been working to clear it up for her but it has only gotten worse. While I've been able to clear her vent enough for her to poop, I have never been able to fully clean it. I figured it was a process that would get better w/each soaking, etc.--yet the next day it would be crusted back over again. Now she's losing weight and she's getting lethargic. Today when I cleaned her I noticed blood coming from the opening I created and am worried that her body is shutting down? Is there anything else I can do to help her or does it sound like she may have some sort of abnormality? She really is the sweetest thing and I feel like I'm failing her. She's been on crumbles as I haven't been able to get any of the chickens to eat pellets, and I've also given her yogurt and cottage cheese.
