    I had one like this a few years back. Got them at about 2 weeks old from the feedstore.

    I think it was a vitamin deficency. I gave mine a small amt crushed Vit B complex mixed in with water(or you could do baby vitamins- poly-vi-sol without iron). I also made a mash with her chick food and water and fed her plain yogurt as well. She was better in a couple of days. I called her Peggy (or pegs). She was my most outgoing in the end and used to jump up on my arm or shoulder for treats!
