    Ok, so I have 6 2-8 day old chicks, the fathers a silkie, not sure about mothers but the chicken who hatched them is a silkie. This morning I came out and two of them were caught in her fluff, one around the wing the other the neck. The one with the neck is fine then one with the wing was holding it weirdly and it was swollen and the feathers were gone. Tonight she was still holding it weirdly so I brought her inside to nurse. We are going to give her antibiotics because she can't tug her wing up, not sure if shes sore or its too swollen. She doesn't look like shes in pain, I'm just hoping the wing hasn't died. What should I do? She's inside with a special chick designed heater and one of her friends for company. Please please help.
