Hi
I have a silkie chick who just hatched a day or two ago. Today, when I took the chicks out of the incubator, I noticed that one of the chicks has wry neck. It wasnt super bad at first, just a bit crooked looking off to the side, but it’s already progress so much that the chick can barely walk, with its neck twisted.
Would it be wrong to euthanize this chick?

try vitamins first. you can carefully syringe them with water. if it is lack of vitamins it will get well soon.

would regular electrolytes work? or do I need to buy the vitamin E tablets?



you can try electrolytes till you get vitamins, not only E. I don't know what vitamins you can get but I remember everyone talking about nutridrench. try to search forum for the wry neck and you will find a lot of information.

make sure your chick is eating and drinking. separate it wrom the others if you can and keep it warm.
