I have a three year old orpington mix and apparently during the night she had a horrible bloody nose or something because large lumpy amounts of blood were splattered on the roost and the walls. Her nose is now just kind of bloody but dried and she has no trouble breathing. There are no other signs of illness, she eats fine and is bright and alert. I use straw bedding and her egg production is slightly lowered but its also very cold so that may be the cause too. I have no idea how to treat and haven't administered anything yet. She's only done this once before but never this badly. No other birds have these signs but I really don't want anything to spread so PLEASE HELP!!!!
I also have a little silky that has a neck prolem or something becausee her neck keeps twisting downwards and to the side. She corrects herself by backing into a wall and doing a little flip to straighten herself. She started this only a week ago. She has a wonderlful appetite and drinks completely normal. She's very alert with no signs of illness other thank the neck thing.
