Polish chick with Wry Neck.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My little week old Polish chick, Flick, developed Wry Neck last night. I had him drinking Turmeric Tea til I could go to the store to get Vit E and Selenium tablets.

 

What brand/type works best? How do I get it into the chick?

 

I've never dosed a chicken before.

I would get some Poultry Nutri-Drench or Poultry Cell tonic and give 1 ml by mouth daily. It contains both E and selenium, and other electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Open it's beak by pulling down on chin feathers, and give a drop at a time, while releasing the chin feathers to let it swallow. If you can find that, just use any poultry vitamin (SaveAChick, Rooster Boster, ect.) in the water, and add a little chopped egg daily to it's food. You can dip it's beak into the water to increase his intake. Here is some reading about wry neck:
