Maybe I'm just a bad owner or something but one of my buff orps had something similar except it wasn't nearly as bad, it just kept holding it's head backwards against its back and occasionally flipped backwards, but then other times seemed a little better/normal and anyway, I was told it was possibly wry neck and nutri drench may help but didn't have any (do now) and couldn't drive so here comes the bad owner part.. I did nothing for her. BUT. She started recovering on her own within a few days, better and better, and now she's fine. I got them as day olds in October from Meyer and they are now I think 21 or 22 weeks old. I ordered 2 of each breed, 4 breeds, but one Barred Rock died and i also ordered their free chick option, and the extra just so happened to be an extra Buff Orpington
so 9 total, 8 now since the BR, and all 3 Orps are now thriving and doing really well and I couldn't tell ya which one was the little wry neck one.
but of course my method of doing nothing is not recommended and your chick looks worse so I'd do something, which you are. Also I now have gro gel, vital pack plus, nutri drench, and sav a chick, and wi use them next batch of chicks if neededEdited by KDOGG331 - 3/26/16 at 10:31pm
