    Can you try giving her some vitimans or better yet nutri drench.? You can get the nutri drench at most feed stores. Its absorbed into the blood stream very quickly. It has lots of vitamins and minerals and energy that might help. I would put some in the water and try giving her some with a dropper. Hope this helps.

    It's sounds like a typical vitamin deficiency. I had this in my flock 3 times. My girls couldn't eat or drink by themselves, they couldn't walk and would do summersaults when they tried . Mine went into full blown wry neck. Where they couldn't lift their head.i treated using polyvisol liquid children's vitamins without iron, poultry vitamin B, human vitamins capsules,a very small amount of selenium (large amounts are toxic) I would mix the vitamin B in the water and the rest in scrambled eggs and bring the food and water to their mouth so they ate and drank. It took a lot of patients and about 4 weeks of treatment but they all did recover. Back to normal.with one of my girls it did return and I treated her again but ended up loosing her . If your bird is young you have a better chance for recovery. This is not a disease but a reaction or symptom of the defiency. Without seeing your bird it sounds like she has a defiency. Try the vitamins and see if he or she improves. Give it time to work. My birds took 4 weeks to fully recover. Best wishes and hope this helps!
