Hi I woke up this morning and my 3-4 week old polish chick was sitting down with heads completey turned upside down. It can't seem to hold its head up at all, and when she does it twists back around to the right, back to an upside down position. It seems completely off balance and can only crawl backwards, as it can't stand up, an it drags its poor little head along the floor. However my other chick, is doing fine.
The chick is still eating,drinking and pooping. I do have to syringe water in its mouth every hour or so just to make sure it's drinking enough.
As soon as I seen my chick behaving like this I took it straight to the vet - they said they were no experts on chickens and guessed it may be a middle ear infection, as tthe outer ear seemed fine. The vet did an all over check and said the bird seems healthy in every other way. I have been prescriped antibiotics for her.
....... But after doing some online checking since the vet appointment, I think it may be wry neck?? I cant seem to find any information on how to treat my chick properly and not sure how long this wry neck will last? does it clear up, and how long will thi go on for?
I can't stand to see my little chick like this..... I would really appreciate the help :)
