    Has anyone ever had a baby hatch with neurological issues. Baby Daryl is 17 days old and when he hatch he couldn't walk and his head is constantly shaking unless he is at rest. If he is relaxed he doesn't shake but if he's try to eat or looking around his head is shaking. I took him to the the vet and she said definitely neurological. He was doing really good eating every 3-4 hours filling his crop full but the past 2 days does not seem to want to eat much. I have been giving him baby vitamins chick start soaked in water and baby chick probiotics. Today I picked up some baby bird formula a used a dropper to fill his little break from the tip and let him eat it down. Any other suggestions would be appreciated i.

    The best I can suggest is to post on "Emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread.

    Hope they can help you, help him. Hoping for the best possible outcome.:hugs:fl

    What species is he?
    Do you have any others?
    What are you keeping him in?
    Substrate?
    Heat source?
    What are you feeding?

    You said "baby bird formula". Do you mean this is a pigeon? Because I'm pretty sure raising baby pigeons from the egg is extremely difficult to do properly.
    If he's not a pigeon, don't give him pigeon formula.

    Daryl is a baby chicken, I have him in the house in a box under a light depends on how warm the house gets but he's been staying between 90-95 degrees I have left him a little warm for his age because of his being skinny and he doesn't seem to mind. He can move around just no balance. I am new to this for and still trying to figure out how it works and where to post. The formula is meant for baby parots I guess it's 22% protein the vet said it shouldn't hurt him I was just needing something that would b go through a dropper or seringe
