    I am giving Fred a dropper twice a day for wry neck. The medicine is working well. I going on vacation for a week in a week. Any suggestions on something to put drops on for him to eat. My husband I have a hard time getting them down his throat. I do not think she will be able to.

    Try a soft treat of scrambled or boiled egg.

    My one week old silkie has wry neck. He falls over and rolls around until he gets upright again. Very painful to watch. Can he survive this and have a normal life?
    Since he is so young, how would I treat him with the vitamins? If I put it in his water I am unsure how much of it he will get and he only gets non-medicated chick starter.

    Where I got this info from was for chickens they said 1/2 dropper twice a day. One week is so little, my duck at 9 weeks is already a few pounds. Maybee a quarter of dropper once a day. Under articles at top of this site. There is a good one on what foods will help get what they need.
