    I have a three month old Silkie Pullet. She has been in an isolation cage since her purchase one month ago. She was doing fine until this past week. She is weak and there is hardly any poop in her cage. I have observed her eating
    and drinking but not a large amount. She is weak on her feet and wil fall over but otherwise seems alert. I did give her olive oil today upon advice from a friend. She did have two poop balls in her cage this morning, this was before giving her the oil.She did seem to have more fight in her today when I picked her up. Any ideals?
