My youngest, Molly, a week old silkie, got trampled today. She's been stepped on before, but this time she did not get up. I separated her into her own brooder. She can kinda wobble... But if she falls down, she just lies there. She has eaten and drank some water and some electrolyte water. Is there anything I can do to help her that I haven't already done?

We've had a hen with a hurt leg, best thing to do is take her to the vets and get it checked out or keep her separate until it heals, :)

Sorry for your loss. We forget how fragile birds can be.
Thanks. She was my smallest.. I separated my now smallest for while I'm not home. I don't want the same thing to happen to him.
