    Is the treatment the same if crookneck is caused by either injury, like being pecked or stomped on, and an infection?
    Thanks in advance

    I would think so, one of my silkies got wryneck and I cured it by giving her the liquid out of vitamin E geltabs once a day.

    Was Vit E the only thing you gave? I have also wondered it if would help to brace the chickens neck.
    Thanks

    Quote:Vitamin E, plus apple cider vinegar in the water, but I always do that. The chick in question was a silkie and I think she got it from getting pecked in the head.
