    Hi I bought some silkies and one of them has become sick. I noticed yesterday he would not open its eyes. It acted as if it was blind but its not. Im really really worried. I gave him some water through a straw and he was drinking it. He also started opening his eyes and walking andd eating. He made it through the night but he's back to how he was yesterday except a bit worst he won't stand and he's not drinking as much from the straw. He also keeps getting into his water thing and laying in it. I seperated him from the others. I'm really scared and I'm a first time owner. I can't take him to a vet but is there anything u can reccomend. Please help!

    I wish I knew. I had one do that last week and die, and now another one is doing it too. I have tried just about everything. Any chance you got that silkie in florida at a swap? Thats what I did....it was a bit "twitchy" on the ride home and I was a little concerned but he seemed to do fine for about a week....then just got worse and worse. Now one of my cochin bantams is doing it. Any help out there would be GREATLY appreciated.

    They are still/eating and drinking/but keep eyes closed otherwise, sit off by themselves. I'm also fairly new to chickens.

    I am soo soo sorry I never replied I'm new to the site and didn't know how to check to see if I got a reply. I really hope everything went well. I feel terrible for never replying [​IMG]. Also I did not get it in Florida. I got it from an olsens grain store in AZ.
