My flock consists of a variety of different breeds. However in the past month I have lost 3 silkies with a 4th on the way. Its the same pattern of events. The bird will start to show signs of weakness and can't keep up with the rest of the flock yet tries like hell (slow movements, easily trampled, ect) this will go on for a few days and the next thing I know the bird has passed. Is it possible they are getting dominated by the other birds and being the last to eat? I have tried giving them haircuts and feeding them separately to see if that was the case but they still end up passing. My silkie rooster was the latest to pass and was at the bottom of my flocks pack (which was suprising as he was my only rooster) Any ideas as to what this could be? And why it's only affecting my silkies/showgirl?
