    So I posted a few days ago about my Sucilian Buttercup and her issues. To summarize she's 3 weeks old but looks like she is one week old, loss balance, uses wing to hold herself up, barely eats or drinks.THIS IS WHERE IT GETS WEIRD!! Today I looked in at her and her head was rolled over on one side (imagine the chicks eye looking straight up) and now she walks in circles one direction, and loses balance then wobbles then falls. Any thoughts? Is this bird suffering? Should I put her down?

    I would treat with Corid incase coccidia is causing the unthrifty ness and then do the wry neck treatment also
