    4 week old chick just started this today. She cant keep her head upright. Always has the left eye 'up'. Walks fine. Ears Clean. All other chicks are okay.

    Get some duck tape around his neck. Make it thick enough to hold his head up, but not too thick so he can't bend down to eat. I did this with a chick and it worked.
