I found my new 12 week old female Black Copper Marans this morning laying with her neck upside down on her back. She was still breathing, so I brought her indoors. Her neck is completely floppy, but she blinks, swallows water and is still breathing, an hour later. When she flinches, her neck is thrown back into an awkward position, but when I reposition it, I can feel her muscles trying to control the movement. My theories: She broke her neck trying to escape her smaller interior cage in the coop (the 12 weeks chicks are attacked by the larger hens) and it will only be a matter of time before she dies. She injured her neck trying to escape, but it could heal with time and rest. I just installed Avian Aqua Miser nipples a couple of days ago for the chicks, I've seen 2 of the 3 chicks drinking, but if she did not get the hang of it, perhaps she is dehydrated and weak, and will recover with fluids and rest. Any opinions or comments? I don't know how much a chicken can suffer, and I hate to drag on her life if her neck is really broken and she can't possibly survive. On the other hand, I'd hate to kill her if she only needs a few days rest and fluids. Thanks in advance for any help you could give!
