What do I do to about wry neck?

    I have a barred rock named Mayflower and the poor girl has wry neck (I think). She is about 24 weeks old and her neck is a bit crooked. I'm concerned because I know it can cause severe problems and even death. She isn't laying yet, and we don't plan on breeding her. I have her on some vitamin suppliments that the local feed store recommended and she seems to be getting around fine. She seems comfortable and active. I was just wondering if any of you have any experience with this condition and may be able to provide me with some advice. Thanks.
