    I think the last little chick who hatched (took over a day and i needed to help a little) well he seems to keep curling his neck a bit. and laying on one side. he peeps alot and tries to walk but seems a bit off balance.. usually to the left. . Although, he has improved a bit but still is tired and tends to rest on his left side? Any suggestions?
    What does crooked neck look like?
    What are the symptoms? Can I treat him with anything? Will he make it?

    If it is crooked neck, then give it polyvisol, and vitamin E. Not at the same time. Make sure you give the polyvisol in his water and take a softgel of Vit. E and cut the end and squeeze it on his beak. Do it 2-3 times a day. Give him a few days to improve and separate meanwhile.
