    There is a "Let's talk wry neck" thread you can search byc for and it might help.

    There are other things that can cause the neck to go like that- botulism, injury, vitamin deficiencies, also you can google twisted neck poultry to see other diseases if interested.

    But for starters I'd try some vitamins to see if that will help. See the wry neck thread! [​IMG]
