Hi. I have / had a young Wheaten Ameraucana roo about 4 1/2 months old. Last evening we went out to do the daily feed and water run like normal. I picked up the little guy and gave him him some attention. When I put him down he just fell over on his head. When I stood him up to see what the heck was up...his left wing was drooping and he could not balance. We guessed dislocated wing so I bandaged him up and isolated him. I checked him this morning and he seemed no worse for wear. Now here is the weird part...when I got home....the bandage was off...he was upside down with his head turned completely around...and he had absolutely no control of his body. He was in distress to the point where I thought he was near death..just the final twitches and he would be gone. I picked him up and noticed his eyes were clear and he seemed alert, however his body did not seem to work anymore. Due to this it seemed unnecessary to allow him to remain in distress so I dispatched him quickly.
Has anyone come across something like this before? I did not observe anything wrong with him before last night so I am kind of puzzled here.
