    Any ideas? I'm treating her for cocci due to blood in her stool. But she's still bobbling her head slightly. Excuse my messy house. [​IMG]

    Oh my.. I happened upon this post as I was going to post a question myself. I found my year old silkie doing the exact same thing tonight. Except she didn't stop moving her head at all. Plus she is very weak- she fell over and couldn't get up.
    Has your silkie improved any? I do recall when my silkies were younger, they would sometimes do the head bob thing. It would only last less than a minute though. Is she behaving ok otherwise?

    I've got her on Sulmet and game bird feed. Tonight I fed her scrambled egg. She seemed a bit better this morning and has improved throughout the day. She hung out with us and the company tonight, ate her eggs, sang to all of us and had some grapes. So far, so good. [​IMG] I wish you the best of luck with your baby. [​IMG]:

    Hopefully, it was just a silkie thing, and nothing serious. Sometimes they do act a little daffy. I am glad she is improving for you.
