    Our hatch is half way done and we had a chick was malpositoned and stuck in the eggs for over 14hrs. After I cracked a zipline she busted out on her own. It seems something is wrong with her neck. I'm not certain if it's because she was squished in the egg but her head rolls backwards and she can't seem to lift it. She''s peeping and falling backwards, getting up and doing it again. I did look up wry neck treatments, should I try it vit E + selenium, and polyvit without iron? Due to the extent of malposition, should I put her down?

    I will submit photos via my phone if need be.

    EDIT:She has passed, this thread can be closed. Sorry.
