    My 3 wk old chick has suddenly started holding her head turned toward the right. Seems to be eating and drinking ok. She's with other chicks only, ones a brahma, quite a bit bigger. Any guesses if an injury or illness?

    Wry neck, crazy chick disease, Vitamin E encephalopathy. Try getting some vitamin E, some selenium, or some poultry Nutri drench into her. I am not a vet, not at all qualified to give treatment advice, simply telling you what I've done in past with fair to good results.
