I posted a few days ago about my missing chick being found but head kinda sideways and clumsy. No one answered so I left him be. Well yesterday it was a little worse but he was running around with his brothers and sisters, eatin really well. Today, I came in and his head was upside down. Completely turned upside down and he kept rolling onto his back. He was still eating and drinking so I did research and discovered its wry neck. I gave him 2 poly vi sol drops. Came out a couple hours later and he was totally stuck upside down and kinda twitching. I brought him in and he's shivering. I thought maybe hes seizing but he fell right asleep in my hands. When he's asleep he doesn't twitch, only when awake so I don't think its seizures. But it is unusual for him to sleep in my hands. I got him in box with a sock propped under his neck because he can't seem to sleep because his heads upside down. Does wry neck actually kill them? Or is it the not eating and what not that does it. I hate to cull him if there's a chance, but if its hopeless then I dont' want him to suffer.
