    Today marks Day 3 of our 3 week old chick experiencing Wry Neck.

    For the last two days, we have been giving it Vitamin E, Selenium, and Pedilyte. Yesterday, it was more alert and moving more.

    This morning, we tried to boil an egg and mix it in with the above. However, it did not want to eat. Around 4, we got the idea to try a raw egg, and it has eaten a lot. However, today it is not alert at all. It has been sleeping all day, but its neck definitely isn't as bad as it has been the last three days. Its more relaxed, and seems to be sleeping peacefully. Is it normal for it to sleep so much? Its not even waking up for feedings today, like it was yesterday.

    Has anyone had the same experience? Is this normal? Is there something more that we can do to help our baby chick?

    Thanks for any info you can give.
