I love keeping and learning about chicken life.
glad you have joined us.
Maybe someone could help me, I have a 4 week old chick who started tucking her head down and walking backwards, it almost looks like she's trying to dig at her feathers underneath but there's nothing there, no diarrhea, no evident trauma, I've separated her from the rest but she's not acting right, I'm not sure if it's wry neck but if anyone has had something similar or might know what this is it would be a big help!
Hi there, I would post right away in the Emergency section for best results: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
the Learning Center is the best place to start. Good luck to you!
What breed of chickens do you raise? Feel free to share a photo if you'd like, pictures are always fun to see.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
What breed of chick is she? This is very common in silkies but, found in other breeds we well. Generally it is caused by a bump or peck to the head. Less commonly it can be from a chemical imbalance. My friends silkie cockerel had in very badly he walked backwards, did some break dancing and really freaked her out. It took some time to bring him through it but, she had him for 5 more years.
