This is the shrinkwrapped baby from my other thread. It keeps flopping over backward and its head is bent to the left. If I stand her up, she flopps over backward. Is there a chance she may straighten up?

I have no good advice, just though I would write something to bump you back up to the top. Hopefully someone can help. Hang in there.

get some Poly-vi-sol liquid baby vitamins, Enfamil brand if possible..no iron..
give 2 drops on beak twice a day for 3 days..then 3 drops once a day for a week...tapering off for another week.
make sure the chick is kept hydrated by giving water by drops on beak.
sometimes this is caused by certain nutritional deficiencies..sometimes from being pecked..(Crook Neck)
also give Vitamin E...just a teeny drop from a capsule.

try and feed some scrambled egg...

fingers crossed for chick.

Shes actully doing much better this morning.. she's standing mostly, and only occasionally falls over. There's another that hatched out in the night that's doing the same thing.. maybe it's just a hard start? I'm picking up poly vi sol this evening.
