    Hi ... I am new to this forum but I hope you can help. My silkie appears to have a shortened neck. I am not sure it is wry neck as it is not twisted (at least not like the pictures I have seen) its more she has her neck slumped into her shoulders. She is still running around with my other silkie but something is clearly not right. Any ideas?

    Only noticed it this afternoon - could it be the start of wry neck do you think?

    I'm not sure... It's unusual that it's not bothering her. If you feel the neck does it feel like anythings dislocated, bruised, etc.? Do you have any pictures?
