I had gotten a pair of silkies from a sale barn mid feb. They were happy and healthy, but my layers didn't approve of them and pecked them all the time. My other silkie rooster (he was raised with the hens) also pecked at them. So they started retreating to the goat side of the coop. I noticed a week or two ago the hen was getting peed on...I think she was sleeping under the goats. I kept trying to intigrate them back to the chicken side but they always ended up on the goat side. So last night I noticed she wasn't doin well. Eyes kinda bubbly, head retracted to her body, droopy wings, wouldn't walk...barely breathing. Anyway, I washed her off (all the pee) dried her and moved her and the rooster to the garage with fresh water, food, and a heat lamp. Needless to say she did die. Now what do I do with her rooster? I'm thinkin she either got kicked or jumped on by a goat or the ammonia killed her, but not possitive. I've got two seperate brooders inside with chicks either 2 weeks old or 5 weeks old. I'm also getting new silkie chicks that were shipped yesterday. Should I keep him quarenteened to make sure he isn't sick, bring him in and put him with the babies, or wait and put the new silkies with him? He's very gentle and seems very sad she's gone. He was jist laying by her and nudging her this morning. :-( I don't want the others to pick on him...so what to do??
