Silkie With Crooked Neck?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My Silkie hen has a crooked neck! Her head is pointed down to the ground. She is a little less than a year old.

 

Here are her symptoms:

  • She is lying down
  • She tries to tuck her head underneath her
  • She is slightly unstable
  • Even when she walks/eats/ect she has this "kink" in her neck (but her head is positioned down)

 

She was hatching an egg about 3 months ago and had these same symptoms. After we took the egg away from her, she went back to normal except for a slight kink left in her neck. Now the same symptoms are back (but I do not think that she is broody). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you

Thank you for your response! My vet said that they cannot give me any Prednisone without my hen coming into the clinic. At this point, I think I should not move my hen too much. Do you know if I should do the treatment you recommended to me without the Prednisone? Thanks again:)
