Well, I have a fully feathered birchen juvenile rooster I just bought 14 days ago. 3 days ago he woke up with his neck twisted down and between his legs. I contacted the seller for help and she suggested wry neck. Said to tRy poly vi sol. I couldn't find poly but I had some vital sol for birds and started treating him with 1 drop mixed into a peanut butter scrambled eggs and crushed chick starter mash with a sprinkling of chick saver. I have been force feeding him for 2 days. Last night at sunset....6 pm, he just straightened his head up and started acting normal....thought it was a miracle! This morning at 420 when I woke up and checked on him, he was crooked over...worse, than before. He actually has his head down and twisted in a loop which has his head facing forward....he can only walk backwards. He was this way ALL DAY. Well, at 610 this evening, he miraculously recovered again!!! I added his little hen and he is eating and drinking and sharing his food. He also talks to her constantly...just like nothing ever happened.
