    A week ago my young chicken got pecked in the neck and she has been healing but now she cannot hold her head straight.Any answers are help to why this might be maybe nerve damage?

    Maybe the peck pinched a nerve? I'd think it might be worth trying "massaging" the neck. Perhaps it will correct itself.

    That's what I was going to suggest. Does she have any problems with other parts of her body? That would indicate a pinched nerve.
