    well it looks like my baby was experiencing vertigo from an ear infection vet said maybe wry neck but treat with antibiotics... should have named him birdigo ha [​IMG] he is 100% better the antibiotics and poly visol worked vet wanted me to also give him sava chick for 1 week too and hes so much better..no more droopy head and walking backwards yea!!!

    but i have a question is there something wrong with his comb? it looks like a raspberry and i noticed he has horns too is that normal? his comb doesnt look like the traditonal walnut comb i see on some..
