    This doesn't look good for her. You need a vet ASAP. Can you post more details? How do you know her neck is broken? I would first put her in a warm place to prevent shock. Does she have and bites or scratch wounds? I would put antibiotics on them to prevent infection. Make sure she is hydrated and give her water with a dropper if she can't drink. Be very careful as you can drown her if you put the water down her airway. Good luck.

    If she's interested in eating, you can make a mash of her feed + water. Other choices are scrambled eggs and yogurt.
