    I have a baby who is 2 days old today. When he first hatched, he could not stand up and just layed on his side.....whenever he would try to stand up he always fell to the left, and lay there kicking like crazy. Well this morning he was up and running around the brooder, i put in a small brooder by himself to see if he would recover....he is eating and drinking and peeping and is very active....but i notice he still leans to the left i put polyvisol in his water....is this something he will grow out of or will it get worse? Any advise is apreciated!!

    It sounds like wry neck. Polyvisol vitamins without iron would fix this. They are infant vitamins sold in several stores.
