    I have about a month old silkie chick that has been fine but today I just notices it won't or can't stand and when you lay it down it falls face first into the ground, it's craw feels full, all the other chicks in the same pen are fine, I gave it some vet rx and probiotic water any suggestions? Any ideas of what it could be?

    Is it in with all Silkies or are their other breeds? I know that Silkies can get pecked, so injury is possible.

    I'm no Silkie expert, so I hope someone with more experience can help you. :/

    It's in with some EE and golden laced wyandotte, it's doing slightly better now it's eating and chirping and drinking no visible signs of injury
