    I have a very sweet speckled Sussex gen that has recently started being very wobbly and sleeps a lot carries her wings lower than normal. She eats drinks and preens like normal. But it seems she has trouble getting her siight lined up to first drink or eat And she does carry her head at times to one side almost like it hurts her. Her poo was runny at first but is normal after being on antibiotics for a day or so. She was pecked about the head a few weeks ago and lost some feathers on her head which are now starting to gone back. Her waddles are paler than the rest of the flock. I am wondering if this is neorological and if anything can help. She is really a sweethearts
