    I have 3 silkies approx. 6 weeks old,. two are active, curious, and have great personalities. the third is very calm stands up, but tends to almost be falling asleep on her feet. used it has been about a week. wasn't the most active of the three ever - just walks to where the others are, fluffs up and closes her eyes. shows no sign of pain, seems to be eating and drinking - good color and nice and fluffy. just always sleepy?... possibly just not a motivated bird?

    no pasty but . fed her last lite, ate plenty, drank, pooped, walked over to her sisters and took a nap... seems fine, doesn't seem to be in any pain. very friendly when you wake her up.. aware of surroundings.. when chicks move, she gets up and moves where they are than takes another nap..

    hmmmm
