About a week ago, I noticed my 12 week old Silkie was falling down while walking, at the time, I thought she was just tripping on her feet feathers. Then on Friday, she was falling down much more frequently and struggling to get up. In the last two days her legs have now splayed and she can't stand at all -- although she tries with all her might. She flaps her wings and shakes her head but can't rise up at all. The only thing that has changed for her recently is that she typically sleeps next to our 12 week Polish chicken and last week one of our Black Australorp's hurt her leg -- that chicken had been sleeping next to our Silkie, but the BA wasn't steady on her feet and maybe at some point fell over on our Silkie. So, at this point I assumed crookneck but now with her legs splayed as they are I am nervous about Marek's and since it has been wet and soggy for the past three weeks, botulism may also be a possibility. Yesterday, she was eating like a champ but today she didn't want to touch her food. I have answered the questions below hoping some more information may help. Please help -- I have read some great success stories and hope to add to them! 1) What type of bird , age and weight.- Black Silkie, 12 Weeks, tiny (not sure of weight but she is a tiny girl) 2) What is the behavior, exactly.- A week ago tripping up as she free-ranged, a few days ago tripping and then staying sprawled on her side, to the point of laying on her back on two instances. Now she is in the feeding trough by herself upright, but with legs out and neck is acting erratic. She most often has her head resting on her back looking towards her back -- I felt her neck and this is going to sound novice but it is in an "s" shape -- but is that normal? 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?-About a week now. 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.- No other signs of trauma. 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.- Potentially our Black Australorp (12 weeks) could have fallen on her while the BA was trying to walk with a hurt leg. 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.- Yesterday and this morning she was eating her organic starter feed just fine, drinking well too. But this evening she doesn't want to touch her food so I had some high nutrient chicken food from the vet that I mixed with water and fed her through a syringe. 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.- Normal, but since she can't move I have been cleaning it from her feathers. 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? I have been following the protocol from Alan Stanford on how to treat for crookneck. So she has been getting Vitamin E, Selenium, and Prednisone. I was also treating up till this morning with Poly-Vi-Sol but then I read somewhere on the forum that it has something in it that cancels out the Vitamin E so I will go and get the Vitamin B tomorrow. I also gave her .06 ml of Metacam as well. I put electrolytes in her water but she now can't get to her water and won't take it when I dip her beak. 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? -I would like to do it myself if possible, but I have access to a Vet Tech too. 10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. I have one I hope to figure out how to add a photo to this. 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use- It is a 4' x 4' coop. The bedding isn't too deep right now. It sits up and they walk down a board. The coop is about 3 feet off the ground. All of my 9 chickens free range, they are all 12 weeks of age.
