    My silk month old silkie bantam is acting strangley. she has tiny black dots around her ears and shakes her head a lot. she is also lethargic, and does not leave the coop, she has not yet layed any eggs. i think ear mites, is there a natural way to combat this? also what else could it be? PLEASE HELP

    Could you post pictures of her ear? And at that age she may be getting ready to lay it is egg bound?

    I have determined she does have mites and I treated her today, she is not egg bound, she has bowel movements. she is better, she came out of her coop.
