    Getting my first polish chick today. I am told she's female. She's black!

    I am excited, and I can't wait to see what kind of personality she will have.

    I have a Silkie roo, that I adore. Was looking for a silkie hen, and some frizzles, but, a polish in the flock can't possibly hurt, right?

    Three of my five SL polish have hatched! Only one of the Tolbunt is out, and it has the worst wry neck I have ever seen. It's getting it's vitamin cocktail, so hopefully it will recover. And hopefully more of the eggs hatch. [​IMG]

    Can you please let me know what you do for wry neck? We're going to be venturing into hatching our own, so I want to be prepared. Thanks!

    So far so good over here, I am impatiently waiting for more to hatch. I think it's going to be a long night for me.

    Here's the recipe that I have for wry neck:

    • 2 TBS Pedialyte
    • 2 drops Baby Vitamin (No iron!)
    • 100 units Vitamin E (squirt out half a capsule)
    • 50 mcg Selenium (1/4 tablet crushed)

    A few drops every few hours until it is doing better. My chick just had it's second dose, it's sleeping peacefully now rather than flipping around crying. Hopefully this is working.
