I have a 9wk old Orpington pullet who was noted last evening to hardly be able to hold her head up. She is not eating or drinking except with assistance. I had her seen by a veterinarian today and she could not determine cause of weakness. She also noted that swallow reflex seems diminished. Only other symptom is loose stool but veterinarian was not concerned about that because she said it was indicative of lack of solid food intake. Unfortunately, I lost an Orpington pullet one month ago to the same symptoms. Has anyone seen these symptoms before? Any treatment, if so?
