    I unfortunately can't help but I thought I would say I'm so sorry for your girl. Hopefully someone with more experience can help. [​IMG]

    I'm so sorry. I don't know what caused the injury or a possible cause. One of my hens hurt her neck like that in a hurry to get out of the coop.

    it may take a few feedings ro work if thst is her problem. She has to keep eating and drinking water even if that means spoon feedimg her.
