My little serum developed a limp and lower leg paralysis, there was another thread about her and the possibility of Mareks. She is isolated, eating well, and has learned a modified walk with her bad leg. She can get pretty fast!
Last night I noticed her wagging her head rhythmically for a good 30 seconds. Today I can elicit it by grabbing her beak and having her pull away. It is not head shaking at all. To look at her, you would say she was dizzy, but she is not having balance problems or other dizzy symptoms.
Could it be her inner ear, a nd the same thing that makes them hold their head in place even if you move their body around? I don't know what it's called. Trying to find info now.
Does anyone recognize this?

can you tell me how to immobilize her head to do the exam? When I try she fights so hard I think she will hurt herself. Wrapping in a towel doesn't control her head.
