I have two Silkie hatchmates, approx 5 months old now. The first a pullet, became quite lethargic and simply just stopping walking/moving/eating/doing anything. Two days later, the cockerel (I think) came down with wry neck/limber neck. His neck was tucked tightly between his legs and when he would try to walk he would simply just somersault. Both of them were brought into the house. Initially, thought that the pullet had sour crop, got that resolved. But she appears to be in an almost CATATONIC STATE!!! SHE JUST STANDS THERE. DOES NOT EAT, DRINK, WALK, PREEN HERSELF, MAKE ANY NOISES WHATSOEVER! I've trimmed her crest around her eyes, she does not act like she can see, although nothing appears wrong with her eyes. They appear healthy and normal (I'm an RN and would recognize if there was something wrong with them, good pupillary response, no dryness). Does not respond to food or treats placed in front of her She will spit out food placed in her mouth, unless placed in the back and then she will eat it. Her hatchmate has responded well to B-complex vitamins, Vitamin E, and Prednisone. He is now able to lift up his head and walk. His neck is still severely bent like a swans and has almost seizure-like spasms, but he is able to feed himself and drink and should be able to go back out to the coop soon. Today, decided to treat my little pullet with the same vitamin and prednisone treatment since these seem to both be neurological problems, but really, what the heck??? DOES ANYONE AT ALL KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?! I HAVE A FLOCK OF 30 OF VARIOUS BREEDS. NEVER HAVE SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE HAVEN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS, HAVE HAD CHICKENS FOR THE LAST 9 YEARS! THESE TWO I HATCHED FROM SOME SHIPPED EGGS I RECEIVED FROM A BREEDER. I'M AT A TOTAL LOSS HERE HAVE SCOURED THE INTERNET SEARCHING FOR ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT MIGHT HELP ME. SO ANY HELP YOU CALL COULD GIVE ME WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU.
