    I would give the little chick two drops of PolyViSol infant vitamin - non iron formula - every couple days. I have read that this can and does help fix wry neck.


    How is the little one doing?

    I do not know - sorry. Not sure what poultry drench is, but if it is full of vitamins and minerals I do not think it would hurt for a little bit. [​IMG] Hopefully someone who has used will see this and chime in.
