    Hi My chicken is having a terrible time with keeping its balance it falls over when trying to walk for the last 3 days now.Befroe it was running around with all the others.I've been everywhere and checked every site I could find,but can't seem to figure out whats wrong.
    Its a 4 month old silkie. No obvious other problems no discharges of any type,poop is brown- whitish at times,green after eating lettuce.Is eating and drinking tho not as much as usual.Just seems to lay there in a corner and falls over whenit tries to walk to far.Also doing alot of wing strecthing forward,preening with head under wings then falls. Can anyone help me out what can this possibly be. Afraid my chicken is doomed.Any suggestions? Thanks
