    I dont know how to care for wry neck silkies and I just found my buff silkie with it. Its only 4 weeks old and this just started today. Im guessing it was injured. Ive read its totally fixable but I just dont have the time and I definitely dont have the money to take it to the vet. Im less than three months from having a baby and my DH knows nothing about chickens. I would love to give this chick to someone who can help. Please let me know ASAP! Thank you!

    I forgot to post an update. I kept her and was able to find someone with prednesone! Im positive it was because of her having a "hellacious" vaulted skull. After day three she held her head up fot a few seconds. By the end of the week she showed MASSIVE improvement. She is back to normal and already weened from the prednisone also. Poor girl is stuck in my bathroom though because my outside flocks all caught a cold while she was inside! LOL hopefully soon she can rejoin her little flock.

    Thank you guys for your concerns and offers :)
