    Our 4 month old crevecouer Pullet is healthy (eating,drinking ,normal b/ms etc) . She had an episode a week or so ago where i watched her jump up and lay on her back flapping and open beak breathing for just a few seconds then i grabbed her up , limp , and all was back to normal in about 20 seconds to 1minute. after the disorientation she began carrying on and eating as normal. I thought this may be a seizure or fright shock , but now after the 2nd episode im convinced its more like... chicken narcolepsy !?
    Any excitement and she goes limp , this episode today was much quicker than the first. our chinese crested pup ran up to the pen all enthusiastically and the pullet jumped up and went limp (wings out , very disorientated) and in a moment she was walking away.
    Anyone else ever had this experience or something similar?
    Im really hoping for some feedback this time as my original post didnt receive any?
