My silkie hen approximately 6 mos old, wasn't feeling good, just setting around, she could walk but didn't feel good and wasn't eating. I brought her in the house she got progressively worse until she can't hold herself upright, she runs backwards until she's in a corner, then eventually she will be on her side. We are on our third week of this, at first she wouldn't eat, but i and fed her and she's had antibotics. Now she eats and drinks, but no improvement on the legs.. Got any ideas? What now?

Perhaps the hen got bit by something infected and the bite injured the leg. The bite also made the hen sick and not hungry. You know how when you're sick you don't want to eat? Maybe it's like that.

GOOD LUCK!
