    i put a couple drops on the beak, they will instinctively drink it- what is the situation? if it is still drinking water, you could add it to the water-

    Quote:well Im hoping its nutrient related. then the poly will fix it. otherwise I think its an ear infection, Im not leaning towards the wryneck. It really doesnt look like it to me. Does it look like it to you?

    Put about 2 drops directly on the beak (not near the nostrils). You can do this twice a day. [​IMG]
    You should switch that chick to non medicated chick starter until she is off the vitamins to maximize absorption.
