Treating Wry Neck in Chickens

Wry neck is a condition that is often referred to as “crook neck” and it typically affects ducklings and baby chicks, although adult birds can suffer from it if they are being fed an incorrect diet.

Knowing how to treat it, as well as ways to prevent it in the future is really important for your flock.

Birds with wry neck cannot hold their heads up on their own and as it progressively gets worse, affected birds start to fall over or lie on their backs unable to walk freely on their own.

They can die if they are not treated and that's not what anyone wants.

Non-iron Polyvisol for children is also recommended to boost the chick or duckling during this stressful time, one drop twice per day.

You will need to be there regularly for your bird in order to feed and water him or her.

Wry neck is not an easy, straightforward, or quick ailment to fix.

You have to be prepared for the long haul with any bird suffering from this.
