    So here is the deal, I have a group of 6 chicks ages 1 month to 1 and 1/2 a month. Well about 2 nights ago my 3rd oldest chicks neck was turned down in a arch shape. Its eating and drinking fine but I was wondering if there is any way to cure it or if it will die.

    its neck was curved? when my chicks neck was curved it had coccidiosis, and it slowly stopped eating and drinking and it died. it also moved backwards alot. i think ive heard of people feeding there chicks yogurt because it has something that helps it but i cant remember. but then again it might not be coccidiosis, im no expert, i only know from my personal birds

    i would say just see if it gets any worse in the next couple of days, make sure it gets plenty of water.
