    My silkie has lost a lot of feathers and the ones she has left are matted down and feel rough not like a silkie should so if you can tell me wether she moultin, is the chick eating her, or both and how to stop/reverse it that would be extremly helpful. thanks in advance. Please note the silkie is about a year old
