I have a silkie that just hatched out 6 out of 6 eggs. She has been a very good momma to the little babies. I went to check on her (she is in the house and I had just been in there a couple of hours before and all the babies were eating ) I wanted to hold her so I picked her up and....... There was a baby stuck in her feathers (it was dead). When we picked her up the babies weight pulled the one little feather that he was stuck in out. The feather looked like it was twisted up and it had had another feather twisted in with it. After the baby fell out of her feathers we looked and the feather had been caught under one of the wings and then around the neck. It strangled itself and it was already starting to get stiff. This is horrible. I am so sad. Never thought that this would happen. Has anyone else ever had this happen???
