I have a pullet, "Rye" that has been trying to get over wry neck. She has been getting somewhat better.... the spasms are pettty much gone but when she gets stressed, she turns her head upside down. She is in the coop with the others. She is still getting vit B and E twice a day, novo doxin antibiotic once a day and selenium every 2 or 3 days.
I am stopping the antibiotic in 2 days which will make treatment for 21 days. It worries me to stop it because my husband accidently fed everyone yogurt which rye ate and it nulls the effect of the antibiotic, causing a hard relaspe.
Anyways, soon I want to taper all vitamins and meds because i cant be home every night, I may have to have someone come look after my chckens a day or 2 a week... I cant ask him to hand feed all this stuff to rye.
So my question is.... does it normally take so long to cure wry neck? Maybe there is some damage and she will always be like this? Will she always need to be hand fed vitamins? (because i cant do this forever)
