    I have a quail chick just acouple days old that has his neck like sitting back near his wing....not straight back but to the side. Any way I can fix this problem?
    Thanks!

    Isn't that caused by a vitamin deficiency?

    How is your quail chick doing? I'm hatching one right now and some how one got stuck upside down wedged between the wire rack and the water trough. It's neck is bent backwards and it's can't stand.

    Sam...did you try the Polyvisol ENFAMIL formulation yet on your chickie? (three drops in beak once a day for a week)
