    I went outside to find my one year old silkie hen lying in the mud unable to walk properly. She can't walk very well and seems t lean to her right side. She also falls backwards.I don't know what's wrong with her and suspect she may have had a stroke if that's possible. Help I don't know what to do!

    Maybe something attacked her. Do you see any evidence of that?

    On Tuesday I had a vet come to look at her for a few minutes and he said its something neurological or viral. She may recover from it and be fine. Best of wishes,:) mommy
