    Hi all,
    I'm wondering if anyone can help?
    I think my 3 month old Silkie "Cloudy" has Narcolepsy!
    We are trying to introduce the babies to the Flock but they are also learning to free range. Cloudy is a general slow mover, but she is happy healthy and walking around, and 15 minute go by, and she is asleep! I can walk up and pick her up, as she is hand raised. She makes a sound like I scared her.
    Than off she goes again for about 15 minute, and asleep again. I doesn't seem to worry her and she is happy, should I do anything about this?
    And what, would I do?

    Never heard of it.Just looked it up.Most people say they are susceptible to predators so if you can put netting over there run i think she will be set.[​IMG]
