I have a 1.5year old bantam Silkie hen. she has been broody for the past month (typical) and suddenly she is unable to bear weight on her left side. when she walks slowly she can just about manage it, but if something spooks her she is on her side. The pad seems a little bit swollen but nothing else seems to come to mind. She is not eating unless i am hand feeding her and wont drink either (i'm keeping her hydrated though a syringe) Also i have noticed there is a fleck in her eye that has never been there before. Please help, i can force/hand feed three times a day at the weekend but as soon as the week comes round i cant do this and i'm scared i am going to lose her. She is currently being kept separate from eeryone else but along side them so they can still see each other. I have fresh litter (wood shaings) feed them layers mash and cracked corn and always ensure they have fresh water. I seriously dont know what i am doing wrong here! !!
