Hello, I need help getting rid of mites on one of my barred rock chickens. She also for some reason recently developed sort of a hunchback, where she doesn’t seem to be able to move her neck up at all on her own, and she looks like she is constantly looking down. The very big problem with this is she doesn’t seem to be eating or drinking on her own, I am able to hand feed her and she seems to sometimes eat things off the ground, but I can’t give her water very well at all. I have been feeding her wet bread to give her some water though, and I have been putting some diatomaceous earth on her feathers where I saw the mites, I don’t know for sure if the mites are what is causing her neck to be stuck like that, but it seems like they may be related. Please help me! Thanks.
