    Four chicks hatched this am in incubator. One baby has wry neck. Can anything be done? New to chicks.

    You need to buy "Poly ViSol" without Iron, it looks like this. Give the chick a few drops a day until its all better. This stuff is usually found by the medicine or baby stuff.

    if the problem keeps showing up in your hatches, and your hatching your own eggs; add some wheat to your mixture. or basically any good vitamin E source. it usually helps.

    Thanks. I purchased eggs. I tried the Poly-Vi-Sol, Vit E, Selenium and baby electrolyte solution. However, the chick died this am.
