    Yesterday my silkie roo slept all day. Id wake him up to tlk to him and when i left he'd sleep standing where i left him. This morning he didnt get out of his coop. He was lifeless. We isolated him and forcefed him water. He seemed to be moving a little bit more everytime he drank, but hed still fall asleep ever 10 seconds.We keep touching him so he wont fall asleep and die. When i hold food infront of him, he'll take two visious bites and go to sleep. Whats wrong with him!?!? He lives with 3 other silkies and lots of babies, who hes very protective of. Did he forget to take care of himself? Please help! Im scared to leave him alone!

    Oh, it could be alot of things.......so hard to diagnose. If he was mine, I'd get Tylan, and give him some with a dropper......That's a very strong antibiotic.....

    Grasping at straws here, but that's what I'd do.

    Its ok, calm down. I'm going to do a little reseach for you. Bring him in side the house and dont let him fall asleep and try to give him some water and food, keep us posted whatever you do! ok?

    Ok i got something I had started a bran new topic just for this a someone said

    Green poop normally indicates bile. Your friends chicken isnt eating or isnt eating enough. I recommend feeding her scrambled egg mixed with buttermilk for several days and provide her with fresh cool water. Scrambled egg is extra protein and buttermilk is a probiotic.

    hope this helps.
