Yes, it looks like wry neck, and the vitamin E and selenium are helpful in treatment. Wry neck is a symptom caused by many different things, such as head injury, vitamin E deficiency, Mareks disease, and many more conditions. Getting enough food and water into them is sometimes a challenge. It can last days to weeks, or more. Here is a good link about it to read:
