In the Brooder
- May 1, 2013
I'm having an Issue with some silkies. I got a batch last spring, was about ten. I lost half of them the first few days and sent one to the lab to make sure It wasn't some communicable disease and it was found negative but the bird had soft bones. So I had five.. and just over the last few months I lost another two of them (now almost year old birds?) I keep finding them unable to walk or stand and then they slowly die over a few days after that. What could this be? None of my other birds are effected. Just the silkies from this breeder. Anyone have any idea? I just brought another one in today to try and get her to drink but she cannot walk like the others.
