    Your new baby has wry neck. She needs vitamins in her water and you may need to dropper feed her the vitamin water if she can't drink it.

    You can get some Poly-Vi-sol without iron at CVS or RiteAid. They are infant vitamin drops and I think around $6. I use a dropper full in the water. I only fill the water jar about 20% full of water so its not wasted. It's okay to give this to all the chicks. You can also give the one chick a drop of the vitamins in its beak.

    also, search for wry neck in this forum. You'll find in some other posts a link to a pretty informative video and a recipe for the vitamins.
