    Wry Neck Advice

    In your opinion, how long would you give a chicken with wry neck before giving up? Im running out of hope and things to try. I haven’t noticed any improvements. I’ve been helping her for 20 days now and I don’t think it’s a vitamin deficiency anymore.

    Wry Neck in a Chick

    Symptoms My barred rock pullet was 9 days old when I noticed that something was wrong. Her little neck had begun to twist back and upwards, leaving her fighting to stand upright, and forcing her head slowly and mercilessly around until her throat faced the sky. It didn’t happen all at once, but...

Mostly she’s acting normal but if you watch these two videos you’ll see her kind of look like she’s got her head way down under her tummy walking backwards, and one of them she even does a complete somersault. And when I pick her up...

    Wry Neck and Swollen Earlobe

    I've been treating a chicken for wry neck. She seemed to be getting better, then went backwards, hardly being able to hold her neck up at all. Today, I noticed her left earlobe is swollen (beginning stages... no debris, discharge, or sores). She's also been mouth breathing, so I have to assume...
