    I need some help with 1 of my 3 and a half week old araucanas, a few days ago i noticed that its neck has gone funny, its constandtly turned so that one side of its face is always looking up at you, and because of this it keeps running around in circles [​IMG] i have reserched it as much as i can but have come up empty handed, and i apolagise if there has been a recent post on this i have not seen. I will try and get a picture of it up as soon as possible!

    Also, if worst comes to worst, what is the most humane way to succesfully cull a chick, with as little mess as possible, we normally use the axe on our older hens but i don't think my dad would want to do that too a chick [​IMG]
