Sick rooster and it's my 1st post

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I search on here all the time, but this is my 1st question. (Thanks for all the great info!) My rooster, of uknown age, is believed to have wry neck. It began a week ago Wednesday when he just didn't act right and didn't eat so I brought him to the house that evening when he hadn't improved. The next morning his neck was twisted that was Thanksgiving day. I began feeding him baby cereal and the Poly vi sol that was recommended. On Saturday I took him to the vet he instructed me to tube feed and gave me Baytril injections for 5 days. I did more research and realized I overlooked the vitamin E and Selenium that is also recommended so I went and purchased liquid formulations of those and began them Tuesday morning. I also started feeding him hand feeding formula for birds. It's Friday and he's pretty much the same. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help. I really live this guy.

Welcome to BYC! I have not experiences Wry Neck myself, but I would recommend searching it on the site (especially articles). I'm sure you could find some information on it.

 

Hope this helps! 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
