chick with neck problem, help

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by McCord6, Sep 27, 2009.

  1. I got one chick, not sure if it is a RIR or a EE, and it seems like she cannot hold her head up at all. She just lays there chirping around. She drags herself everywhere and is continually getting crushed by the others, or picked at. What can I do to help her if there is any way? her head curls up under her and she can't left it up. Hubby is laying down on the couch with her on his chest, massaging her neck gently, like our neighbor advices. She said she never seen that with any of her batches and adviced me to asked BYC. Wish I can take pictures but my camera is just not working!
