    I just came home to find one of my week old silkie died....it seemed fine earlier today they were all eating and drinking.
    Was gone for two hours... so sad. Am i missing something?
    the temp is fine they have food and water. No problems with the butts. Does this just happen?
    I am new to this. Thank you for any input.

    Sorry for your loss.... sometimes babies get parasitic infections and maybe was weak from birth....
