    I have 1 chick that has a curved neck (doesn't look like WRY Neck) and here's my theory .. can i get some feedback from the experienced people please.

    The chick was too big for his shell because I had to help him out and upon doing so I noticed his neck and head being wrapped where the others weren't.
    Now it's neck is not backward or hanging down like most other WRY examples I have seen after researching..

    Is it possible that his neck is just temporarily formed like this from being constricted up in his egg?
    His left shoulder and wing are weaker than the right side.

    Is this possibly temporary or am I looking at a deformed for life chick???
