    Hi all, I have 3 barbu D'anver bantams approx 5 months old and 2 are fine and healthy but the third is acting very strangely, she has her head twisted back and looks like she is in pain, I have been straightening her neck and feeding her and giving her water but as soon as I put her down she goes crazy and twists her head back up again, has anybody come across this before or does anyone know what the problem could be please? any help would be very appreciated

    It might be a vitamin deficiency. I'd get some vitamins (polyvisol vitamins without iron for infants work well) and start giving you chick some.

    Thank you Wyandottes7 and eggcessive, I was starting to think it was the end of the line for her, but the post on oureggbasket is brilliant, I never even heard of wry neck, just goes to show what horrible things can happen to your little ones, Thanks again
