I am pretty sure that your wry neck problems did not come from the feed. I never have wry neck problems with any of my poultry. I do not give rooster booster or supplemental niacin. I also don't try to save defective hatchlings.
You have me interested now. I remember wry being caused by vitamin deficiency. Did I get that wrong?

A couple lasted to 8 weeks for butchering. A couple passed before then. I don't separate or expend effort.

I've got a small one in the last hatch of 4. The other 2 caught up to the big egg Rosetta looking one.

I usually see people trying to treat wry neck with vitamin E.

Wry neck can be a symptom of several different problems. If it is a symptom of a vitamin deficiency, it would be cause by the deficiency in the brood stock. If it is a symptom of a disease that is a different story.

There is also the possibility that the tendency to get the symptom may be genetic.

Curled toes definitely can be due to genetics.

Everyone wants a simple answer but for the most part things are complex.

Interesting. Thank you for sharing the knowledge. I hope I don't see it anymore.

The first hatch from my Le Creme project just finished:

It would appear to be two Egyptian females and one pharoah of indeterminate gender. I wasn't really expecting to get a Le Creme since I only have about a 6% chance of each egg being one in this generation, haha.

Also, one of my new Celadon hens laid her first egg. It's blue. Which leads me to believe the male I was using might actually have been carrying Celadon. So I'm quite possibly looking at more Celadon layers right away.
