    I have a hen that has her head turned, almost 180 degrees - She will let you move it, but keeps it turned on her own - It has been like this a few days - she walks w it like that - I did look and see 2 lice on her - could not find more or find eggs, but imagine there must be - We will be addressing that - Wondering what else may be wrong - Thanks

    So sorry about your baby. You might also try some vitamins...especially vitamin B, E and selinium. Both of these can help with this sort of thing.

    Good luck and I hope she recovers. :)

    It has nothing to do with mites but, sounds like she has wry neck. What breed is she? I ask because it is very common in silkies. If you put "wry neck" in the search box a lot of comments should come up.
