    In July I had a 6 month old Silkie hen that started falling over and stepping on her wings she couldn't keep her balance so I took her into the garage for 2 weeks,she seemed to improve so I put her back into the coop then in September she started doing the same thing all over again so I separated her again this time she didn't recover I found her dead one morning.Now I have a 8 month old Java rooster acting the same way there has been no sign of sickness he was fine Friday night and then on Saturday morning he was fine at noon I went to check for eggs and he was on his back I thought he was dead but when I turned him over he was fine he just couldnt stand up so he spent the night in the garage this morning he is still the same Help!

    Are you familiar with Marek's disease? You may want to do some research to see if that is what could be going on with your birds.

    Good luck.
