silkie neck injury?doubting wry/crooked neck?

post #1 of 3

Hey everyone, hopefully someone has felt with something similar. My small silkie roo, 6months old has gotten injured somehow. He was up on the couch and when we went to feed him, he jumped off the arm rest 3ft. And landed on my other house chicken..immediately after that he would just stand in the middle of the living room floor, kinda tail down chest higher.. he seems odd... He was quite the talker and now makes NO noise at all, he's just kinda standing there..he won't go after any treats or water on his own. If I bring water to his beak he drinks, if I get him a cricket( which he goes crazy for usually he'll eat it no problem) when I used to walk towards the cricket container he'd beat me there before. Now he won't go to them... Hes sitting there with his neck kinda tucked close to his body, not too bad but he won't extend his neck out far like normal..he feels like he has a bump/lump right under his lower beak, even his beard his off to one side a bit because of it... It literally happended right then when jumping off the couch and landed on the other bird... My guess is that he hit his neck on the other while landing on the other one.... Could he just be bruised and sore/hurting from that... I've read just about every wry/crooked neck thread it is...and some kinda sound similar, I'm just looking for others opinions on the matter...I will be getting the vitamin and supplement to treat wry neck as a precaution, but like I said looking for more opinions and possibly someone who had a similar scenario... thank you so much for looking... Peepee thanks you too

Well my boy is doing fine...I think he just hit his neck and larynx landing on my girl... Took him a few days to make noise and start acting himself again....today he started crowing again and acting his normal silly self again..I have been giving him vitamin e, selenium and vitamin b complex...not sure it had anything to do with it, but it couldn't hurt...
