One of my Day old Phoenix chicks is holiding it's head straight back (top of head touching back) and it keeps falling over. It is eating and drinking. I know I read somewhere that a blind chick did this, it's eyesight seems fine. Any suggestion?

I was going to suggest you make sure it gets lots of water but you said it is drinking. Hmmm maybe a little sugar water? Sorry not much help here.

I always put sugar in the water of my newbies. I also gave it a drop of Nutridrench, I didn't have Poly Vi Sol but Nutridrench has lots of vitamins in it. I hate that I can't watch it during the day. But I guess what ever is meant to be will be.
