I have had Sikers, Silkers, my Silkie, for only about a year now, she turned 1 year this Oct..... She has always had a problem perching because her wings are furry, right? Even with help of a latter, I have to put her to the highest perch at night manually. Well, tonight. I went down to the coop to close the doggy door from the coop to the run and was surprised to see Silkers sitting on a perch in the run, outside, at night, even though the door to the coop was open! I shown the lantern down and she seemed to perk up like "oh, what am i doing here." Then I reached for her and just nearly grabbed her (wasnt even picking her up or putting any pressure on her tummy), and she started to -not casually like water spit ups but not extremely violently- throw up a light tan/brown liquid. Alot of it. Also, she has always been thin. I'm not sure if its the breed, since shes my first silkie and i dont know much, but her keel is pretty distinct. She eats very well, is crazy about food and grass, VERy energetic, runs from door to door to make sure i give her food, drinks etc... a bird you would see and say "wow, what a happy, healthy bird" After she threw up and shook the crud from her beak, the lanterns light made her trot off to the coop doggy door now, but I grabbed her and ran inside to tell my dad who is an equine vet. He said she was probably fine, but then again he says that about everything that usually ends up dying. Im very scared, I cant even sleep. I love Silkie so much and if I lose her Ill be so heartbroken I wont know what to do! I have such a close relationship with her since my family isnt the closest thing Ive got, and the pressure of getting into college and slowly doing worse and worse in classes has gotten me depressed. And I keep having a vision of letting the chickens out in the morning and seeing my poor Silkie on the floor dead.....PLease, help!
