one of my chickens has had a fit twice before, flapping around on the ground with her head back like she has a broken neck, just for a few minutes then shes right again. I thought she'd been bitten by a snake or something and was dying. Has anyone ever heard or seen this. Wondering weather to put her down or not. Now its over she seems fine, eating and doing everything like a normal chook.
perhaps bitten by a spider? I don't think chickens have epilepsy as I can't find anything on the subject. I am allergic to spider bites now and have had a nasty similar reaction. Just a thought...hope someone has the correct answer but if she acts normally otherwise I'd probably just keep an eye on her but leave her alone.
