Wry neck in geese

I understand this is a forum for chickens, but I am sure that some have various forms of fowl. I have 11 baby geese. After 2 weeks, one started holding his head down and cocked to the side while he was walking. He was obviously less energetic. Upon researching, I discovered something called wry neck in ducks. It is caused by a niacin deficiency. I immediately put molasses in their water and started to ferment their feed. I mowed grass and gave them grass clippings and gave them alfalfa sprouts. After 2 days, another began showing the same symptoms. On the 4th day all symptoms were gone.
