I have been treating Nigel, my Silkie (surprise) for wry neck for three weeks now. He is still no better than he was when it started. I was just wondering how long some of you have treated for wry neck and had a bird recover. Based on what I have read, I have been optimistic but that optimism is starting to waiver as I see him continue to struggle. He is only 11 weeks old and for over a quarter of his life he has been contorted and unable to eat and drink without assistance. I guess I am just looking for some hope....or a reality check. My treatment plan has been: vitamin E - 1 capsule in the morning and one in the evening Selenium - 25 mcg in the morning Polyvisol (no iron) - 6 drops in the morning and 6 drops in the evening I feed a mixture of half scrambled egg and half organic chick starter mixed with water and made into a mash 3 times a day he has also just finished a 10 day course of Duramycin-10 because he was sneezing, but he drank so little I don't know how effective it was. I would like to try some prednisone at this point but I worry about his immune system (he is still sneezing) and the nearest vet who will treat a chicken is an hour away. Not that I mind the drive, it is more my concern that the stress will make it even worse. He is separated from the other chicks and currently lives in a plastic tub in my bedroom. He shivers sometimes, which I don't know if it is from being cold or if it is something neurological, so I keep a heat lamp nearby but not directly on him. I have been using towels as bedding. I swear I do more chicken laundry than people laundry. If anyone has any suggestions, traditional or even homeopathic, please let me know. I just feel like there is something I am missing. I read so many posts here and on other forums where the chicks were better in less than a week and others where chicks have been treated for over a month but then I don't know what happened, did it recover or not make it? Nigel's quality of life is very important to me but I will fight as long as he is willing to fight too.
