    I know its supposed to be genetic but was wondering if anyone has ever tried to treat a 2 week old with vitamins or such I have a 2 week old (guessing) serama frizzle . just getting tail and wing feathers. with bones still forming i even wonder about a splint ?

    Wry tail is caused by a deformed spine. It is definitely genetic. Not something you want in your gene pool.

    Good question? But, personally I would never breed anything that suffered from wry neck either. Just something else I wouldn't want in my gene pool.
