    I had a silkie chick that is a was a little over 2 months old that died last night. I noticed yesterday that it was very inactive, just sitting and kinda drawed up. And occasionally and without warning it wouldl go into a fit of running, squawking, and shaking its head. I have no idea what was wrong with it. Any ideas on what may have happend to it?
