New chicken mama here. Picked up our first 9 chicks on 2/13. One suffered from pasty butt and what seemed like wry neck. I separated her almost immediately and began vitamin E. Added in selenium and poly-vi-sol (no iron). She can eat and drink on her own (except when she spills her water - which she does frequently) but I still make sure to help her drink 2-4 times a day. Occasionally, I gently straighten her neck and tonight I felt a distinct curve and possible bump in her neck. It wasn't her crop - it was definitely in the vertebrae of her neck. She can move her head but it's as if her neck grew to the right instead of straight. So does that mean it's something different than wry neck? Any advice?
