    thank you. my vet is sending her off to a specialist in macon ga. i am hoping that there is nothing else i need to b worried about. i have already had 3 chickens die in like 3 or 4 months and i know someone with 200 chickens this isnt a big deal but i only have 8 chickens so this is a VERY big deal. she was my favorite...

    I don't blame you for checking to see what's going on with them, you sure don't want to lose any more.
    Good luck to you and your flock.

    So sorry. [​IMG] I lost a silkie this summer. She was still very young. The farmer I got her from said that silkies are more susceptible to bacteria as youngsters than some other breeds.
