    This is a 1 day old chick. She started looking to the ceiling of the incubator as soon as she came out. She does seem to be thriving but I want to make sure I'm doing the correct treatment. None of the other chicks in the incubator came out like this. Just her. I've been told to use Poly-Vi_sol with Iron - 2 drops. & Vitamin E. I've not isolated her - she's still in with the flock. Please give me your thoughts if I'm correct on treatment plan. Thanks!

    I hatched a batch in March and I had a female chick do that. She's 3 months old now and shes normal. She used to sit just like the one in your picture. She should be fine, as long as you see her eating and drinking.
  5. Can she make it go strate or is always like that, because i had a chick that did that when she drank or just to do it .
