    Our new goslings arrived yesterday from the hatchery. We got 3 buff's, they are doing well, but the littlest one seems to have a kink in her neck. She keeps it turned to the side most of the time. Kind of like she is looking up at us. I have felt her neck and can't feel anything unusual. Any ideas?

    (see
    section 4.3)...it might also be a thiamine (B1) deficiency or a combination of both ... whether this is primary or secondary to something else, addressing any possible deficiencies known to cause this symptom can only be supportive.

    we have roens and one of ours had the crooked neck, let me tell you she 's about normal , her neck is still a little crooked ,but she has the most personality of the bunch. she could only look up to one side when we got her. She never had any problems eating or drinking only walking at first.Hope this helps
