    Hello, I have a 1 year old sultan hen. About a month ago she had an eye problem and I took her to the vet and got that solved. Then about a week ago, she got lice and mites and that took a toll on her. She is still trying to get over them (going to get adams flea and tick spray). But just a few days ago she wasn't acting normal at all. She kept wanting to be in a nest box. So I moved her into a dog crate in the garage with food and water. She has been there for about two days and is showing symptoms of wry neck. She is losing control of her head/neck and is almost want to roll. She wasn't wanting to eat so I mashed up some pellets and water and gave her pea-size drops on the inside of her beak and she ate them *VERY HAPPY* I also gave her a few drops of water. I'm going to get vitamin E and selenium and I have some B-complex(already put it in her drinking water). How do I give her the vitamin E and what should I do? Thanks in advance.
