How old was she when she first started having those problems? Do you have any pictures of her? Was she vaccinated for Mareks disease? For most chickens to treat wry neck. You can give 400 IU of vitamin E daily, along with some B vitamins which are found in many chick vitamins and in human vitamin B complex tablets. If using the B complex, givd 1/4 tablet daily crushed into some food or a spponful of water. Scrambled egg contains selenium, and just a small amount daily would supply enough to help the vitamin E to work. It is not necessary to give a selnium supplement, since it is in so many foods, and only a small amount is needed.
