    So today at work we got in a chick shipment and we had a baby come in with wry neck. I talked to my boss about it and he agreed that if this can be a problem that takes a month or so to treat then we can't keep the baby at the store so I decided to take her home myself and see if I can help her. At my work she didn't seem as bad but moving her to my house she seemed to get worse. I have some nutri-drench I gave her a drop of once I got home and put some in her water. I also have a second chick I bought to keep her company. What else should I do for wry neck? She is also having trouble eating and drinking on her own so how should I feed and water her? I really want to help her recover but I also know if I can't help her I am prepared to take her in to be put to sleep. Right now she is wrapped up under my shirt and sleeping on me because she cries if I put her in the brooder even with the heat lamp on her.
