    Help! My hen had droopy neck so I treated with Polyvisol and Vitamin E with selenium. She was better after that and walking and standing, but NOW she can't stand and her butt keeps lifting in the air and throwing off her balance so she falls when trying to walk. Her legs seem too week to stand, especially the left side, so she is on the honch part of her left foot to eat. HELP! We are going on two weeks now. I did stop the vitamin e once her neck was better (then I read you need to keep giving it to her for three weeks so back on it). She also was on panacur for worms per the vet, and corrid for coccidosis. How long do I have to treat for coccidosis? When she got worse; super weak on left side and couldn't stand, I stopped the corrid to give her lots of vitamin B; complex, nutridrench, and even polyvisol. That didn't help so now I am back on corrid and vitamin e with selenium. Anyone else have the but up in the air and tilting over issue? HELP! She is about 10 months old.

    Did you ever find out what this was other than the droopy neck?
