    This morning when I went to the barn before work, my roo d'Uccle was acting funny. He is a pet so I handle him a lot. When I got him out of the cage, He was holding his head cocked to the side. I just got home and went to check on him. His head is now almost completely upside down! His craw is REALLY full and squishy. He does not seem to mind if i move it around. If I turn his head to its correct position and offer water, he drinks. What could be wrong and WHAT CAN I DO... We have no vets in our area that will treat birds.
    THANKS

    Try looking up "wry neck" in upper right hand of page on google search. He may just have a full crop from eating today. If it is not empty by tomorrow AM after no food overnight, then look up for "impacted crop."

    I agree.. Sounds like wry neck. You could always try poly-vi-sol. Does he have any other symptoms?

    He doesn't have any other symptoms and does not seem in pain. I'm going to look up "wry neck" now.
    Thanks
