    It just means that there is a hole at the top of the skull, you have to be careful.

    One of my silkies had a bubble head when it was a day old, so far he has the largest crest.

    One day, he was pecked in the head by a bigger older EE, and then he got wryneck where he was twisting his neck and didn't know which way was up.

    I gave him vitamin E and he was fine within 4 days. I thought he was a goner for sure.
