Initially we thought that she had wry neck, because of the way her neck was turned. It’s gradually gotten worse and today I checked her over and this spot above her wing and on her shoulder seems to be injured. She’s not in pain and we’re feeding and watering her individually so that she gets plenty of nutrition. We’re also treating her for wry neck as well by giving her plenty of vitamin E and selenium just in case it is wry neck. Any opinions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated! **PICTURES ATTACHED**

Just posting here isn't going to get your hen much help because a vet who understands bird anatomy must be able to palpate the wing to figure out if it's broken, dislocated or if it's neurological (wry neck). We can't do that since we can't reach through the screen and touch your bird.

In other words, touch is even more important in this case than photos and a narrative.

You hen is likely in pain whether she shows it or not. One 81 grain chewable aspirin in the morning and one late in the day can help with the pain. Pain management is as important in chickens as in humans to help healing occur.

But I suggest you try to locate a vet to examine her and make a diagnosis so she can have the proper treatment she needs.

Right. I should’ve mentioned that I’ve tried getting her to a vet but there’s only one near me that takes care of chickens and they’re not making appts because of COVID. Thanks for your input!
