dlhunicorn Im hoping you can help me again. You gave me some advice last week for my sick chick that was thought to possibly have had botulism but after reading your site I came to the conclusion she has crookneck. I have been following the suggestions of Alan Stanford and she is improving greatly! Though I noticed today she has a large cyst almost the size of a golfball on her right breat. Do you have any idea what this can be? Maybe this is whats causing her other issues...cyst pinching nerves..do you think thats possible? Anyways Im looking for some guidance again. If anyone has any idea what this may be and what I can do please leave me a message. Oh I forgot to mention that she has suddenly started to eat her pine shavings in her box. I find this weird, does anyone have an explanation for this behavior?
