    Hmmm. The convulsion makes me think that the peck on the head may have caused a neuro issue. There may be nothing that you can do but watch and wait. The treatment that you administered already is the best that I can think of. Poor chicky.

    Keep us updated with any changes. Maybe someone else will stop in with more ideas.
