I have not ever given my chickens milk so I cant help there. Emily was having spasms and I just held her trying to keep her calm.I found the Polyvisol at Walmart by the baby formula. Its was a challenge getting my little Wry neck chick Emily to eat. I kept her separated and fed her by hand for a week.(What ever she wanted , melons, eggs, scratch.) She also could not drink as her head would just flip right back and the water would almost drown her. The only thing I could do was to hold her all day supporting her neck with my thumb and keeping her head right even when her body was off so she knew where up was. I also would maneuver her in my hand so that gravity and her head would allow water to go down into her. It took a lot of time and effort but after a week she was able to hold her head right long enough to drink. I would say just keep at it. Its a lot of work and time but your chick will be super friendly and spoiled if you and she can get past this.
Well it has been just over a week now , she is still in isolation , and seems to be getting better slowly .In the evening is the worst for her, She has the seizures over and over. We have been taking her outside to see the other girls every couple of days and let her run around with them but will not leave her with them as we are worried about her falling from the boxes or the roost if she has a seizure.
Since the area we are keeping her in is not that big, we have been having a problem with her falling into her own waste, and has ended up covered in poop. We are cleaning the tote out 3 times a day, but in the last week have had to bath her 2 times, and now I think because of the baths her Lil neck is so dry and flaky. Is there anything I can put on it for her? we have not been using shampoo or anything on her, just warm water and letting it soak off and then blow drying her on a cool setting.
We are still feed her the Vitamin and on the days we do not give her eggs we give the extra selenium. I just don't know what else we can do to help her, or how long this is going to go on for, How long should we let it go on? is it causing her pain? We have not been able to find any Polyvisol in the local stores. its so upsetting to see her curled around in the tote. I have been holding her as much as I can. Sorry for the long post, Ranting out of frustration. Thanks for any answers in advance.
