    2 WEEK OLD WRY NECK DUCKLING
    Glenda Heywood
    I was pm'd THIS QUESTON AS WHAT TO DO:
    WITH DUCKLING AFTER IT BECAME EXCITED WHEN BROUGHT IN FROM BEING OUT DOORS BRIEFLY?
    Glenda Heywood
    DO NOT ALLOW THE DUCKLING OUTSIDE TILL IT IS OVER THE STAGGERS AND WRY NECK.
    THE DUCKLING NEED VIT E AND VIT B COMPLEX
    Immediately to help this problem.
    You will however NEED to take a eye dropper:
    (1 and feed the duckling water with apple cider vinegar
    1 tbsp to pt of water
    Do this till after the duckling is better. Should be able to put the ACV water in a small waterer for the duckling.


    (2 immediately give the duckling 1000 mg capsule of liquid Vit E by cutting the end of the capsule and taking the vit E capsule and Let the oil run into the ducklings beak.
    Maybe stretching the neck some so it will go down.


    (3 also need to crush a vit B complex pill in a tbsp and put it into a tsp of water and put it in her mouth after it is disolved.
    Do both Vit's twice today then for 7 days till you see some improvement in duckling.


    (4 generally the shock of a new arrangement will cause chickens or ducks to have this nerve damage.
    By allowing the young duckling to view and be out around things strange to it, caused the attack.


    (5 after today I would see if the duckling will eat a
    natural probiotic wet mash:
    2 tsp of dry crumbles
    4 tsp of milk sweet, sour or buttermilk
    1 tbsp of non flavored yogurt
    mix good and put the
    vit E liquid as directed in the wet mash.
    And crumble the Vit B complex tablet in a tabspoon and add to the wet mash.


    (6 Do this twice a day for 7 days to see if the duckling is better.
    Then do this once a day for another week then once a week for a while.
    This should give the nervous system some stability.


    (7 you probably didn't notice it soon enough.

    I LOOKED AT THIS URL AND CAME UP WITH MY ORIGINAL RECIPE
    AND YOU MIGHT ADD
    SELENIUM CAPSULE TO THE
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE
    AS THE LADY SAYS SELENIUM ALSO.

    ie:
    Incorporating some molasses into the afflicted chick's diet is beneficial, as molasses is packed with vitamins and nutrients.


    Selenium helps boost the effectiveness of Vitamin E, so simply treating with a Vitamin E supplement often isn't enough.

    Instead, adding natural sources of Vitamin E to your flock's diet works better, as many of them are also a good source of selenium.

    FEED INGEDINTS HIGH IN VITAMIN E

    #1: Dark Leafy greens
    such as spinach or kale or cabbage
    Wash all greens good so as to
    get any pesticide off greens before feeding to chickens


    #2: Nuts ( for humans)

    #3: Sunflower Seeds
    Vitamin E in 100g
    Per cup (135g) Per ounce (28g)

    Other Seeds providing Vitamin E (%DV per ounce):
    Pumpkin & Squash Seeds (3%) and Sesame Seeds (3%). .


    So we can subsidise our chickens diets with these treats.

    Some of these seeds are readily available year round.

    Top 10 Foods Highest in Vitamin E You Can't Miss



    [​IMG]
    Vitamin E is a group of 8 fat-soluble vitamins which help prevent oxidative stress to the body, and other vitamins within the body. Adequate amounts of vitamin E can help protect against heart disease, cancer, and age-related eye damage (macular degeneration). Conversely, too much vitamin E from supplements can lead to excessive bleeding, or hemorrhaging. Vitamin E foods, like the ones listed below, are considered to be safe and healthy.
    Foods high in vitamin E include dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, avocados, shellfish, fish, plant oils, broccoli, squash, and fruits. The current Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E is 20mg. Below is a list of foods high in vitamin E by common serving size, for more, see the list of high vitamin E foods by nutrient density, and the extended list of vitamin E rich foods.
