    Back on 1/09 I encountered my Silkie Cinnabar with what I found with the help of BYC friends to be Wry/Crook Neck. [​IMG]
    And now after nearly 3 weeks following Alan Stanford's treatment Cinnabar is doing so much better. [​IMG]
    I'm nearing the end of the last week of the treatment and below is a pic of how well Cinnabar looks now.

    Thank you Everyone who helped me through the beginning of this. [​IMG]
    I was so afraid I was going to lose Cinnabar to the accident (goofy chicken games) that caused this.
    I'm still not sure I want to put Cinnabar back in with the other 4, with us possibly having 3 roosters (Sunshine-Sultan, Blaze-Silkie, and Cinnabar-Silkie),
    and them competing for the dominant roo position.
    I'm going to keep Cinnabar on Vitamin E, B complex, and Selenium until I'm sure it is completely recovered.
    Then and only then will I put it back in with the other 4.

    I am so glad for the help I received here on BYC, Y'all are Great... [​IMG]

    Well Cinnabar was getting lonely for his sisters and brothers so we decided to start introducing him back with the other 4.
    Big mistake, Blaze mom's silkie tried to rip Cinnabar apart b4 he was even down on the cage floor. [​IMG]
    So to help get them use to each other again I put his whole hospital cage in the chicken pen. [​IMG]
    He has a 31"LX14"WX28"H cage and it's in our 7'X3' sunroom pen.

    Mom decided yesterday that if Blaze continues to be hostile toward Cinnabar, Blaze is either going outside with the 4 large fowl, or he will be given to a new home in our area that will take on a Silkie. Since Blaze is the 1 that hurt Cinnabar in the 1st place, it'll be the 1 that is given away.

    Wow while I was typing this, mom tried to put our Japanese bantam in with Cinnabar and Cinnabar got out into the big pen. As I was moving as fast as my poor legs would take me [​IMG] Blaze was trying to attack Cinnabar while he was in mom's arms. Now mom is out there with a water squirt bottle dousing Blaze every time it goes near Cinnabar's cage. [​IMG]

    What a mess... [​IMG]
