    Question for a pro!
    Our ten week old red silkie has been twitching her head.
    This evening she shook her head then scratched her
    neck, head.. Then she did a triple take or quaddriple
    Take.. Her head seems as though she has had some
    neurological damage.

    When I am out with them no one picks on her.
    I put her in a different coop with some younger
    more docile girls..
    However need advice..:(

    PM me as well..please

    Have you tried giving her extra vitamin E?

    Do you have a local pet store? That's where I find most of the vitamins for my birds.

    Thank you!

    yes most of us go to Tempe feed & tack..
    The amily that work there are fabulous!!! I put her with our
    other younger flock. She was extremely upset the minute
    I put her in the other pen!!
    I did it at bedtime.. She just would not settle down.
    Even the morning still thouing a fit!!
    So I put her back in with her sisters..
    I have not been able to post photos via my iPad.
    I will try again.. Love everyone photos :D
    Thank you again..
