    I have a 4 week old quail with wry neck. In its first week that I noticed it had wry neck I was giving it vitamin e with eggs and rooster booster in her water. After a week she wasn’t improving and I started to forget to give her the vitamins regularly. She is now about 2 weeks into it. Is there any helping her now? Is a brace ever okay?

    If vitamins haven't helped then it may not be fixable.
    You should never put a brace on a quail's neck.

    If the damage is permanent, especially brain damage, it can't be fixed.
    Any slight improvement is a good sign, but if there's nothing positive happening, then that's where things will be.

    Try some B vitamin complex that contains thiamine, that might help.
