ok so my silkie, twix, has been very skinny lately... but today she seemed to be a little better (also any tips to help her gain weight would be appreciated!) I had her in a stall in the barn so she could have all the food she wanted without getting bossed around by the other hens, but sense she was looking a little bit better i decided to let her out (plus, it was sunny).... but she managed to squeezed her tiny body out of the pen! Daisy, the one who rounds up the chickens when needed, had Twix pinned down outside of the pen. Daisy is usually gentle with smaller hens (she super gentle with chicks) but when i got outside and down to the barn (i saw them from the window, then i ran out) Twix was all wet (saliva or snow?) there were no scratches that i could see, but when i looked at her rear,something was strange... there was a red blob near her vent? (not sure if that's what you call it... the place where she would lay an egg from!) it was shiney and just looked like red blob (it looked like it was "breathing"??????) any what it is??? right now shes just shocked/ freaked out and all wet.. shes in the stall now with her sister (i say sister because they were in the same bucket at the feed store and there both buffs, but i'm not a 100% sure) what should i do!?!? how do i get her back to being fluffy and a good weight? and what is the red blob!?! i'll see if i can get pictures later.
