Hello everybody! Just wondering if anybody has had this problem? We have 2 one week old emu chicks , they were both completely fine , one has suddenly started tucking his neck under his belly , like he can't hold his head up ūüėě, he's falling over , he will eat drink and poop , I've started giving him some electrolytes , any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks!!!!

 In chickens this sometimes happens after a peck or bump to the head/ nutritional deficiency.  I don't know if it is the same with emus.  Please post asap  on the  "Emu thread."  put that in the search box and it will come up.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
