    I went on vacation and left my husband to take after the hens. I came home tonight to a sick white silkie. At first look, I thought that she was really dirty, but after I picked her up I noticed a rotten smell, runny & bubbly eyes, a bump under her right eye and the top of her beak off center from the bottom. I am unsure what this is. Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks

    notice the bump under her right eye.

    She has a bad respiratory infection. Make an appointment with the vet tomorrow.

    What type of a vet do I call? Is there any other way to get rid of this? Any suggestions would be really helpful.
