Hi all. I’m a new chicken mama, and I need some help. I have a Polish who is about 4 weeks old and is not doing well. I have spent hours researching over the last few days, and I think she has wry neck. Where I’m stuck is figuring out why she has it. Is it vitamin deficiency? Head injury? Marek’s? Newcastle? How does one determine the cause? I want to help her since she’s fighting too, but I don’t want it to be for nothing - because then I feel like I’m prolonging her suffering. I have been feeding her can tuna in water mixed with some of her feed, some vitamin e oil (I got a bottle of the oil rather than the tablets), and some b complex (I got soft gels and am squeezing the contents into the mixture). When I can get her to eat, she definitely eats. She’s enjoying the food for sure. As far as symptoms, she walks backwards with her head completely turned upside down. She gets herself all tangled up. It appears as though she has seizures or tremors at times. She also takes one foot and puts it on her head. Sometimes both eyes are open, other times, she keeps one eye closed. I feel like her being contorted like that is painful, so I’ve got her swaddled like a baby so she can keep her neck in the right position. She manages to get out of her swaddle frequently. what symptoms would I look for to decide if it’s Marek’s or Newcastle? I’m worried about my other 8 chicks. I did separate her as soon as I saw this behavior, so she’s in a box in my room. sorry for the long post, and thank you for any help.
