Recently we had a bad storm and one of my polish hens must have gotten injured or possibly injured by the others, and we lost her. The next day we had another one go down, but she was in much better shape that the first one. So I put her in an individual pen in the back yard. She was there for about 10 days and seemed to be doing well. Last weekend we had another round of storms, and on Mon. she was all curled up kinda upside down and barely breathing, then flopping around and not looking good. After much looking on this wonderful site, I think she might have wry neck or something similar. I couldn't get her to eat or drink for 2 days. After that I was able to get droppers of liquid into her. She would either just lay kinda all upside down, or flap around almost like she was having seizures. After lots of hand feeding, she is now to the point that she can stand (briefly) and at least sit upright, instead of upside down. She is trying to eat on her own, but bobbles a lot and so I am still hand feeding her some. It make me dizzy just to watch her, she has to be miserable.
Any hope that she will get better? She has made improvements, but she is a long way from going back to her pen. Right now she is in my dining room. And while hubby is being very patient, not sure how long that will last!
Attached is a pic of Molly before she got sick. She is 5 months old.
Any ideas / suggestions appreciated.
