Hey all! I raise silkies and just recently I have lost two birds. I lost one yesterday and I lost one a week ago from yesterday. The first was roughly a year old male rooster who I have had sense feb. He was fine and then Sunday morning he started sitting in the corner just not moving or anything and staring. By early afternoon he couldn't even hold his head up. What could have happened? I did notice that his rear end was crusted with bird droppings. The second one was a little black silkie only a couple of months old and it was fine and we walked out to the coop yesterday mid morning and it was dead. Never showed any signs or acted sick. This one also had a lot of droppings crusted on it's rear end. What could be happening? Should I worry? Do I need to do something different?? Any help please!
