I have a gorgeous partridge silkie that has lost weight since putting her out in the coop with the others maybe 3 weeks ago. She is over 5 months old, fully feathered and has always been healthy. No poop on her butt, no discharge from eyes, nose, etc. I am honestly believing that she has such a large top knot, that she cannot see where the food and water is. I just brought her in and she has not stopped drinking and eating for the past 15 minutes. I tried trimming around her eyes and I cannot even find her eyes. Has anyone ever lost a silkie because of this? She fought me (so she still has some strength) when I was giving her Poly-Vi-Sol by dropper. I feel so bad, she was so happy to be out with all her family Her face is all wet now, so maybe I'll try to trim some more, if I could find her eyes. I am giving her non-medicated chick starter, she usually eats Flockraiser. Hopefully the higher protein will help?
