    About 4 or 5 days ago one of our 7-week old pullets couldn't lift her neck, and was stumbling around with a bad case of tremors. I just went to this forum, typed the words "bent neck and tremors" on the search engine and immediately found what we were looking for. We separated her from the other 9, and started her on Poly Vi Sol and Vitamin E, as suggested. The first day we had to feed and water her by hand, but on Day 2 she was able to eat and drink on her own even with being hunched over. Today she is about 95% recovered, and we've been re-introducing her to the rest for about 15 minutes at a time. She still gets a little bit dizzy, and since the others try to peck at her when she has those relapse moments, we take her right back out of their enclosure. It looks like another day or so and she will be good as new. We just wanted to say thanks to everybody that posted on this subject before. All of your advice was great!!
