RE: Jersey Giant Running Backwards with Twisted Neck, having possible seizures: We're now convinced it is some type of seizure disorder. Two days ago she had a classic grand mal seizure brought on by the stress of trying to catch her to give her her vitamins. The good news? She is MUCH improved now after a few days of vitamins and minerals. She still spends more time than the others looking at the ground and preening her breast, but she is now walking pretty normally, eating very well, and perching with no problems. There is no more running backwards, getting stuck in corners, or twisting her neck around/clenching her feet. She is also vocalizing less of that weird chirrrrruuuppppping chirp. Here's what we did: It's not really scientific, but we wanted to cover all our bases. We made the following "MASH" which we gave to all 12 chicks. This is because Big Ethel got so stressed with the handling that she would seize, and also she wouldn't eat if separated from the flock. IF THIS WAS FOR JUST ONE CHICK (she's about 8 weeks), I'd cut it by six or more but make sure she gets all of if. (Good luck with force feeding this liquid! The mash is a lot easier if they're eating on their own) In a small saucer we mixed up: One crushed Selenium tablet (200 mcg) One Vitamin E capsule (400 iu) Poked a hole and squeezed it all out... One Calcium Capsule (1200 mg) plus Vit D3 (1000 iu) Squeezed out. It's pretty oily. One crushed egg shell (microwaved first for about 45 seconds to kill any pathogens. Or not Mixed this all together well then added One whole dropper of the Poly-vi-sol liquid baby vitamins (no iron) Diluted REAL Gatorade (the type with SUGAR, not with artificial sweeteners). Diluted to maybe half strength. Added about 6 tablespoons of the this liquid to make a sort of soup with the vitamins. It wouldn't function much as Electrolytes since it's in a mash, but they LOVE the bit of sugar and it does have Potassium which can't hurt. So it's about 1/3 cup or so of liquid at this point. Then we added just enough of regular chick starter, free range pellets, or some bread crumbles to make a thick mashy paste which we spread out in a big pan and let them at it. They all love it, (especially Big Ethel), and eat every last bite; even running around to clean off each other's beaks for the last crumbs. As I said, not scientifically perfect, but it gets the job done. None of them will get too much of anything, and since Big Ethel eats a good portion of it, the eggshells in particular, I know she's getting plenty of supplementation and she's definitely improving. We definitely learned a LOT this week!
