How about a box large enough to accommodate your hen and line it with several old towels so it cushions her flopping about? If you place her in the box in a quiet place, she probably will feel secure and won't flop about as she would with other chickens around.

This shouldn't be for long. I've seen vitamin E work very quickly. The worst case I treated was just a few months ago. My thirteen-year old Brahma hen has a tumor on her head and it put pressure on her brain. She had wry neck so badly, she could barely stand without falling over, and she couldn't eat or drink at all. In two days on the E, she was back to normal.

Boy, I hope my little cross doesn't have a tumor. She eats just fine with her cross beak.

My house is very active so that one's hard to accomplish until night time. And it's to cold for her to be outside in a hospital cage alone at night.

Please bless her soul in heaven. We tube fed her yesterday and gave her the higher strength e vitamin, but she wasn't strong enough to survive. She died some time last night. Her before this happened.
