    I recently noticed my silkie chick, Gidget, acting a little off. She is about 3 weeks old and all in all seems healthy. She eats and drinks and runs around like a normal healthy chick. However, I noticed that she only seems to look down and not hold her head naturally up like the older chicks, sometimes even tucking it between her legs. Is this something I should be concerned about?

    So the more I'm reading the more I'm leaning towards wry neck. I want to start treating her asap in case it is. Would treating her with poly vi sol have a negative effect if it is not actually wry neck?
