    I have a 2-1/2 month old silkie and i've started to notice when she jumps or starts moving after she was still she twitches and dips her head often, also when i pick her up her head twists 180 degrees. When i put her down her head goes back straight but then dips it a bit then shes back to normal.. I have 4 silkies and only one of them have this issue.. I will try and post a video soon.

    Does it have a vaulted skull? Sometimes silkies can have neurological problems if they get peck in the skull. Are they with other breeds or kept separately? I know nothing about wry neck so I can't say if that's what is going on.
