SILKIE LOST CONTROL

My silkie started acting strange. Her head flops around and she looks like a chicken that has had it's head chopped off, flopping around.

HEAD FLOPPING
by: Sharon

This sounds like a neurological problem. Could have been caused by injury, toxin or disease that attacks the nervous system.

Her only hope would be if this is temporary and she can survive with special care, basically helping her to eat and drink, as it sounds like she may not be able to control her body.

She should be isolated far from other poultry and birds in case this is something contagious.
