    Does anyone on here give their silkies added vit. E with selenium as a preventive for wry neck and if so how much do you give each bird?I would like to add it to the food instead of doing each bird which wood be very time consuming.I did read that 400 iu and 25 mg per bird if they have wry neck.Does this sound safe?All I could find in the selenium was tablets of 200mg.If I crushed this and added some liquid vit. E and put it in there food once a week would that be safe and be a benefit to their health?
