    I have a beautiful black silkie hen. She's been very loud up until yesterday- yesterday as i was carrying her she decided to jump out of my hand. Unfortunately she got caught on my sweater and she fell on her stomach :( She's been quiet and lethargic. She's also not eating and not drinking very much. She stands fine, and she flutters her wings occasionally so i don't think anything is broken/sprained. Anyone know if this is just maybe shock from the fall? Hopefully it's nothing serious... She's my first chicken and I love her tons... Thanks for your help in advance!!

    Keep her warm and bring her into the house. Give her water in a syringe if you have to as well.
    Hope she get's better!

    Can't find anything, but the white poo shouldn''t mean anything is wrong with her. What I do know is when they convulse, it usually means they are about to die. I really hope this doesn't happen and your chicken get's better. [​IMG]
