Rooster with damaged neck. Has anyone else had the same thing?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I think my rooster had an accident with a male muscovy and his neck and head dangles to the right. He tries to staighten it and when he finally can he sits up and walks around like normal. Except for the fact his head is a bit tilted. I will be putting hm down shortly but i wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience. It is very bizarre.
