    A have a young pullet who started out just looking tired and over the space of 2 days rocketed down hill. Now she's weak, barely able to walk, and twisting her head to one side so her right eye is looking straight up. She can straighten up but seems to twist back unless she's forcing herself to be straight. She's in a hospital cage eating a gruel of chick starter and yogurt with Solmet added to her water. My husband syringed some pedialyte down her this morning.

    Her sister is in the other hospital cage with some kind of injury to her right side that made her wing go limp and her leg weak. She is sort of improving.

    Neither of them have loose stools.
