Hello, I have a small flock of 6 chickens and recently acquired another silkie from an over-crowding situation. I took pity on "Olive" and now she is in my garage in quarantine away from the others. She looks rather "rough"... she is supposed to be 1-year old. She was broody when I got her and the lady said she was also molting... though I'm not so sure. I've checked her all over several times for mites, fleas, and lice and haven't seen anything. Her skin is just so exceedingly dry and flakey... especially on her head and neck. She barely has any feathers left in those places, and I read that molting starts in those areas, so maybe she really is molting. She is missing feathers on her lower chest, but that is from being broody (I assume). The rest of her body has feathers but they are quite ragged. She just looks so much different than my other silkies who are EXTREMELY fluffy and have huge top-hats and leg feathers. I have been rubbing bird skin salve on her that includes aloe, lanolin, and preen gland oil in hopes it will help her look and feel better. She is bright, alert, eats and drinks like normal, and seems quite happy other than looking unfortunate. Any advice on how to get her head fluffy again?
