    Can can a new hatchling be born with wry neck?

    Yep, it's called a star gazer... dosing directly with poultry nutri drench *might* correct the problem. :fl

    Are you able to post a pic or video?

    Well I could but I dosed her up with some vitamin e. Nutrition supplement I got from the vet for rescue dogs and cats. And water...she's coming right out of it and already holding her head up and trying to climb out of her isolation tub! Yes I am playing 10 hrs of chicken sounds for them. I got a male and female egg from someone because the parents are so pretty! Here she is in this video!

    She's perfect! Thank you. I just moved 4 ducks to the hatching bator. They pipped in transport. I put them air cell standinding up with a slight lean so that the hole was the higher point! Is that correct?

    I think so unless I'm misunderstanding somehow. :fl:jumpy:jumpy
