    My daughters pet silkie phantom isn't acting like herself. We had put her out with the other chickens and all has been fine. until today I came out to feed them and phantom was laying in the mud . She didn't even get up to the door when I opened it which is very strange for her not to be the first. I noticed she was muddy wet and shaking. So I brought her inside rinsed her off with warm water. She was still shaking and she is breathing through her beak and wanting to sleep. She ate a little food so
    I added egg yolk and calcium which she loves and she ate a little more. Know she is sitting under a lamp and sleeping

    Welcome! Sounds like your doing the right things. Just let her sleep and continue to monitor her.
