    Keets are walking with their wings spread out as if to help with balance. This has been happening for 3 days. They take a few steps with their wings outstretched and then sit down. Their legs and feet appear fine (straight), their heads are fine (not turning backwards) and they don't walk backwards. Any ideas? They have not been ill. I have a picture but it won't let me post it...

    All I can think of is put them on vitamins. My guineas always had extremely good balance except the one who walks on his knees. Good luck!

    We increased their protein intake and gave them some vitamins and they have all recovered. Yay! Thank you to everyone who replied.
