    This is the second ameracauna chick this year that I have had hatch with its neck like this. My first thought is wry neck. The first chick I gave vitamin E and poli vi sol. With 24 hours the chick seemed fine. This one hatched yesterday. I've tried treating the same way but this time no change. In the pics you Can see the chick bending its neck backwards. When it relaxes as seen in the other pic it's neck looks fine. I don't see this chick walk around. So far I am syringe feeding it. Thoughts? Is this a breeder issue? Wry neck? Something else?[​IMG]

    So the chick looks completely normal. Two for two this way. Any ideas?
