Please help!! My favourite silkie has been acting very strange recently. She is the smallest in a flock of 5 chickens consisting of 2 ISA browns, an Australorp and another Silkie who is a little bigger than she is. She is constantly getting picked on by the 2 ISA browns and finds it hard to get food by herself as she is scared of them, so is the other silkie. We have had our chickens for about 5 months now and everything seemed fine until the past week or so, when the pecking got much more frequent. When we first got her, she was lively and ran around the garden with the other silkie, who is still the same. Neither of them are laying yet as they are still quite young. This morning we found Petal (the smallest silkie) lying on the ground in front of the ramp, where the other chickens were standing on her as they came out of their night coop. She didn't move so we then had to pick her up and put her under the deck with her own food and water. She then moved a little, but hasn't moved from that spot for a few hours now. She also doesn't care if you pick her up at all, whereas my other Silkie sometimes tries to flap away. It has been extremely hot here recently, getting to about 38 degrees so I have been hosing down the bricks and soil with water to cool them down but the chickens are panting and still seem very warm. She is the sweetest little chicken, and I love her so much which is why I am so worried. Could she be depressed or is she sick?? What can I do to help her??
