So this chick was perfect this morning. But now her neck is all twisted to the side and she is stumbling around. I have been holding her for a bit and she is laying in my hand not moving. My instinct is she is dying. But why? And what's wrong?? She was happy this morning.

I'd separate her. The others could accidentally hurt her, or she could be contagious. It could be a lot of things, maybe wry neck?

so sorry for your loss..... =(
was she with others, ? they may have hurt her....
when you find chicks with twisted necks its usually because another grabbed their neck...
I give mine poly vi sol right away and separate them....
Your baby looked like it was too far gone.... so sorry....

I don't know what happened. She was fine this morning at 10.... when I came home at 2, she was like that. They already had vitamins in their waters. I did separate her once I found her. but she was dead by 5pm. I knew she wasn't going to make it, she just looked like she was dying. Hopefully the rest of the clutch do okay.
