I am a new member and in need of help. I have a female silkie that has been losing feathers and I thought she was molting. Today I noticed she looked and was acting a little different. After looking her over I discovered that one of her eyes are extremely swollen not shut and it was easy to catch her which tells me she's becoming lethargic. She was very boney too. The roosters are gaining up on her and what I read is that when a bird is injured the flock attacks. If I can keep her separated and alive through the night does anybody have any recommendations of what to use on her eye and what I need to look for elsewhere and to do to get her back up and healthy? Thank you!
