Don't know much about it but had a pheasant poult with it earlier this year.
Didn't seem to affect how he survived anyway. He survived to be released from the pen

Just discovered its an inner ear infection, waiting for my vet to get back with any solutions

I have a 5 month old rooster who has suddenly developed wry neck in the last 3 days. Just read vitamin e and selenium cute it after a week so just trying that now. First time seeing this in over 10 years if keeping birds. Google said it could be caused by genetics or injury also but he doesn't have any cuts etc on him. Going to try b12 too. At moment feeding him milky porridge, sunflower seeds and honey in evening and scrambled eggs in morning with plenty butter.
