I have a chick who is about 35 hrs old. She was hatched with wry neck. I have been treating her for about 24 hrs with selenium crushed up in water, and nutri-drench. She originally held her head at 180° so you were looking at the bottom of her beak when you cupped her in your hand. But now she holds it at about 90°. I Originally posted in the byc facebook group where someone, very rudely, jumped on me saying it was splayed leg not wry neck and i should do my research. (I have raised chickens my entire life. Ive seen em both).
So for arguememts sake, I threw a bandaid on her even though she holds her legs straight under her when she is not stumbling all over.
So. On to why i originally posted there. I wanted an option for a humane way to prevent her from suffering should i be unable to get her to start eating once the yolk in her belly wears off. She is making improvements and her head now sits to the side instead of under her. But i don't want to watch her starve to death if it gets to that.
Thank you. First pic is when she first dried off. Rest is recent pics.
