Heres the short of it...back in October I went to the Ohio Nationals wanting only a barred rock pullet to add to my small flock of 4 golden comets. I found my "Barbie" and of course we left with a couple Silkies. At any rate, I have kept the older silkie and the BR in a seperate pen just for safety's sake. The BR had diarhea when I brought her home, and I chalked it up to stress from travel and the show...then I figured it was a change in diet...well its been months now, and she still seems to lack solid poo. The Silkie she lives with has shared this affliction since about week 2, so I worried that it was contagious...ssooooo It has been nearly three months with loose poos but absolutley no other symptoms. They eat and drink fine, no breathing problems, no worms, feathers and eyes look great. Could it just be that she is prone to the squirts? I want to get her in with the rest of my layers, but I don't want them to get sick from her.
