New Hatched Chick issues


May 6, 2016
I've been getting fertile eggs since December, and have been allowing them to develop. So there's been chicks hatching almost every week since the last week of January. Going through all those hatching and failing to hatch has been a great learning experience. But today I have a new chick with an issue I have not seen.

The chick falls over easy and keeps leaning back it's head; basically looking up. Does anyone know what is going on and how to fix this issue?
Unfortunately the chick died yesterday. My brooder has been successfully used for about 20 chicks before and some currently.

I looked up the wry neck and it sounds exactly like what I observed. Has anyone been able to treat the condition?
