    Hi everyone, I have a silkie hen, she is about a year and a half old I call her funny feet as when she was born she was unable to walk and I had to make her some cardboard shoes to straighten her toes and then she could walk and up until now has acted completely normal! I have noticed over the last couple of days just extremely slight things, when she is at rest her head will start to tilt to one side then she will recover it to a normal position when it's tilted too far, this morning when I let her out her head has a tremor? There is a slight shake to it with her trying to recover it to normal and it seems to throw her just off balance she will just stumble occasionally, like she is dizzy? Could this be wry neck? Thanks in advance for any advice
