    I lost a roo today and i think it might have been from the same thing

    I found him when it was too late

    I found a similar thread and gave here crushed up b complex in water and am giving her acv mixed on water also

    Another roo was being rough with her right before this happened [​IMG]

    She may have suffered an injury that caused her wry neck, but it also can be a symptom of a vitamin deficiency, and certain diseases that affect the nervous system, such as Mareks and others. Vitamin E and the mineral selenium are used along with Vitamin B1 (thiamine) to treat it. Adding water to her feed and holding her to help her eat might be needed. Place her in a small pen close to food and water. Let us know how she is doing.
