    We just got 2 Silkies (Sophia and Rose). Sophia is a naked neck Silkie and Rose is a regular Silkie, and 1 is pooping really smelly.
    I gave them some hard boiled egg today and they ate it up and have been acting normal. Just the one is having the poops.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Is it every single time or just every so often? It is acting normal otherwise or lethargic? How old are they?

    Today it seems to be almost every poop. They're about 3 weeks old.

    They have starter food all the time. The egg was a treat today.
