Hello, new chicken mama here. My first hatch. Only one chick hatched. It seems to be having some trouble holding its head up. Maybe a little bent in the neck. Otherwise seems fairly healthy. Still wobbly, but is standing, chirping sweetly, and starting to try to preen and peck. Could be wry neck but only slight if that is the case. Hopping to do what I can for the dear little thing. I have an electrolyte/probiotic mix. My question is: is this normal of should I be concerned and after how long should I take more action?

i have not had wry neck issues but i think its okay and a chicken can live with wry neck. as long as she is eating, drinking, and walking around i say shes okay.
