    Hi. My name is Kristy and I am new to the site. I have an 8-year-old hen and she recently developed Wry Neck and a 5-year old who stopped eating suddenly. Both saw a vet and are in recovery. The younger chickens are doing very well. I created a youtube video to share how I feed an ill chicken. I hope my video is helpful if you are having to hand feed an adult bird.
