    I have a Faverolle Bantam chick that is only a few days old - it has trouble moving its neck because its stiff from being in the shell too long (was trying to hatch four days) its neck is getting better but I was wondering how often I should get it to drink until its able to drink on its own???

    If it were me, I would go with once an hour during the day and two hours at night, but I'm guessing.
