    Please help with what could be wrong. I've attached a video of what it does.

    The chick had its eyes open on day one but has closed them since. I'm feeding it crushed up chicken starter, infant multivitamins without iron, electro water and vitamin e.

    It could be yes, please do check this out ~ http://www.browneggblueegg.com/Article/Crookneck/Crookneck.html

    I would also take the chick off the shiny paper you have it on now. This can cause leg issues and won't give the chick much grip to move around especially as it is having issues already. Do you have any save a chick that you could start it on?
