post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My 2day old peachick started acting strangely a few moments ago. Throwing its head around as though compleatly off balance, looking backwards up and waking backwards into the wall of its box. I'm pretty new to this and I'm very worried about it I don't know what to do. Please reaspond asap. I have it on video too

You should go to the forum and then go to other backyard poultry and click on peafowl I am sure someone can help you there.

Or the Emergency section. Sounds like it could be star gazing or wry neck (usually cause by a vitamin deficiency). Both conditions can usually be cured or managed with vitamin E and selenium. You can purchase the E capsules at pretty much any vitamin shop or use Poly-vi-sol (without iron), which is typically found in the baby section of most grocery stores.

Best of luck!

with poly vi sol only a few drops as it meant for human babies and toddlers and your peachicks are much smaller of course.

 

when i have ducklings the first few weeks they get about 4 or 5 drops every couple of days....i give it to them for the niacin
