It sounds like wry neck symptoms which can be due to heredity, vitamin deficiency, or head injuries. That causes running backwards or in circles, and can cause a twisted neck or start gazing.I would start some vitamins including thiamine (B1) and vitamin E. Cooked egg can add selenium which helps with vitamin E uptake. Some vitamins such as Poultry NutriDrench and Poultry Cell have all 3, but it may require a little more vitamin E, such as 400micrograms a day.

I agree it is wry neck. Did you figure out how much vitamin to give the chick? How is she doing?
I have an eye dropper and I’m putting a couple drops on her beak at a time same with the vitamin E I’m worried she’s not getting enough she’s still having problems I scrambled an egg she’s had a little bit you have any suggestions
