    I have a miniature silkie chick born 24 hours ago it's feet are still curled up tight its making no effort to walk and also its neck is twisted to the side. I've taped its little feet to some card in the hope that it will solve that problem, but the neck is concerning me most is there any way I can help it?
    Also it hasn't fluffed up completely yet and just screams when I touch it I feel so bad for the little one. [​IMG]
