6 week old chick twisting head and can't walk

Thread Starter 
My 6 week old chick is twisting its head and can't walk. I'm not sure what he is, but I do know he is a 6 week old bantam. Please help! Thank you!

It could be wry neck.

Provide Vitamin E and selinium. You may have to encourage it to drink with a dropper or syringe.
