    Ok so I'm stumped. One of my sizzle chicks is showing some bizarre symptoms of what I think is an inner ear infection. It has started flicking its head sideways (skull tilting side to side) occasionally, usually after shaking its head. It sounds a little congested when it chirps and the feed store chicks came in with a virus, but everyone else sounds/acts normal.

    Could it be that whatever is causing the congestion is causing the head flicking/balance issues? Anything I can do for it? I have vits/'lytes in their water and just gave it a drop of Poly-vi-sol.
