My neighbor lost another chicken to varmints last night .......
It was the rooster with the frozen comb that I was asking about..(I didn't realize you had one with wry neck)
I'm really glad that he made it through that and that he's doing a lot better! That's awesome!!
I had a Silkie X develop wry neck. I could keep it under control with the one type of poultry vitamins that I had...but as soon as he was with the rest he would start to relapse with the neck. I did the same as you.
I consider his siblings are on probation. I suspect it will not be the last I see of it in that line. I hope I'm wrong..lol.
Here is a picture of him from today. You can see that his wattles are fine now, but he has lost almost all of his spikes and I expect the rest of them to fall off in the next day or so.
Well he is still a good looking Roo and healthy so I hope all works out for you ...
Thanks, Gander. I am still battling lice with him. I just got the Neem oil in the mail yesterday. So last night he & his companion got another bath, this time using Neem Oil, Dawn dish soap & water. Then towel dried, followed by blow dyer. My family laughs at me. We have a foreign exchange student living with us for 10 months and she about died laughing the first time she saw me using the blow dryer on the rooster! But, you gotta do, what you gotta do. It's way too cold here to not make sure they are fully dry, even when they are quarantined to the house (which she also finds amazing.
It was sleeting this morning & has now changed over to just snow. Coming down pretty heavy. Predictions call for about 1 inch, but we are already there & the snow isn't suppose to stop until about 3 this afternoon, It's only 8:35 AM right now.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you get to spend it with people you love!
