Sure! I'll try to get one tomorrow myself. Thanks
You're Welcome. I hope your's just has a birth defect like mine. My girl's condition progressed to the point she flopped over on her side, & couldn't get up on her own. She can't roost normally. Vitamin E helped with the flopping issue, but not the rest. She still falls over sometimes.

Here's the video of my chicken with her Neurological Birth Defect.
Thanks so much for taking that video, it does feel a little bit like Blondie! A little bit do you think she is using her wings because it might be easier than walking? I took a video of her but i have to see if it shows very much or not.... but I might not post for a few days. She's very pretty!

Chickens will use their wings to pick up speed, or help them balance. My girl will do both sometimes.

Thank you. She was supposed to be a Dark Brahma, but she looks more like a silver pencilled Brahma which is fine.
I'll be looking forward to seeing your video if you upload it.

Possibly she has an ear infection which would cause her to lose balance and have the need to scratch at her head and then cause the issue around her eye. A Vet to get some antibiotics would be needed.
Thank you!!! I just asked my boyfriend about this since he is around her a lot more, and he says she is constantly trying to scratch her head! I thought it was just part of preening.... maybe that's the problem, or at least one of them!
