my chook as some of you have read has head trauma causing the crooked neck syndrome in my young female polish bantam. i thought that when i have a headacke i use an ice pack to ease the swelling. so i got a cold bottle of water from the fridge and gently pressed it against the bump of the crest area on the head. to my surprise my chicken snugled up the the cold bottle and began to make coowing noises. every now and then it would rub its head back and forth against the bottle. it was the most straingest thing to watch. so ive been doing this for once half an hour a day. its starting to eat now...oddly though it grabs a bit of pellit and turns its head upside down to eat it. im confident that she will recover if i keep up the massage therapy on her neck, and the vitamins and the ocasional cold water bottle.
