My little 6-month-old Belgian D'Anvers has been inside for about 2 weeks now. At first we thought she had broken her foot, but she has not improved. She is lying on her side, but still eating and drinking normally. After reading a bunch of forum threads, I thought perhaps she has Wry Neck, so I got some vitamin E and gave it to her this morning. I have been feeding her chicken vitamins and letting her self-feed on food.
I am concerned about Mereck's disease - my other two hens seem fine, however.
Should I try an antibiotic? Dewormer? More vitamin E? wait and see?
The closest vet who sees chickens is 30 miles away, so I'd like to exhaust the home remedies before going that route. Also $$. But my kids love this little girl!
