I have 5 silkies and just introduced 5 bantam chicks. One of my silkies started acting strange this morning. Chripping loudly and flying into the fence. I picked her up and checked her. Eyes look clear, but her mouth looked pasty. Now she is just hunched down and every now and then her head drops. Don't know what is going on. I was going to start tylan on the flock but don't know if this is what I need to do. Yesterday is was doing just fine. Help please.. my 5 silkies are about 9 months old.
I now have the silkie separated from the flock, any idea of what else I can do.
Can you post a few photos?Are you sure its a she?that photo will photo will help
Does she have gray goo near her vent?
Is her abdomen hard if so she may be laying enternally which may get bad I have silkies this has never happened to me scratch that it has happened but the hen was a normal old English game hen or something like that but she had yellow goo coming out of her eyes I think she got better we gave her to a nice family with kids and they had time to take care her but yeah post those photos
