    Please help.

    On Tuesday I found "bumblebee" laying on ground with a severely kinked neck.

    She is polish chicken. 2 months old.

    When she hatched she had really bad splayed legs but my hubby nursed her back to health.

    We had a chicken do something similar and diagnosed symptoms as wry neck( from net searching) but....... He took her to the vet and diagnosed Middle ear infection and prescribed an antibiotics used for cats and dogs. Within 24 hours she was walking around and she could hold her head up straight again.

    But this one is not responding to antibiotics. Do u think it is wry neck??

    Symptoms: can't hold held up
    Flimsy neck, can almost rotate head 360 deg
    Head twitches

    However sometimes she can manage to hold her head up for short periods of time for little bit of food and water and to clean her feathers.

    Do u think this is wry neck?? Any suggestions as to how she could improve?

    My hubby is rather upset ans grown quite fond of her. I will take any advice.

    I will try post a video or photo
