    So I've searched and searched and there doesn't seem to be much about wry neck that is for sure from an injury. I have nine 3-4 week old araucanas, and 2 meaties. The meaties are enormous, and yesterday during a feeding frenzy for bugs one of the large meaties trampled my 4 week old. Since then it's neck is rotated to the left, like star-gazing, and often curved to the left as well, but not tucked under or backwards. I've given it Vitamin E and Bs and egg (it's been eating egg most days since before this happened) and molasses and I've put a vitamin supplement in the water. Since this is from an injury and not a nutritional deficiency, will all these supplements help? Is there a better way to treat wry neck from an injury? Is there some I can give to treat any inflammation?
    Thanks for any help you can give me.
