    Hi [​IMG]Welcome To BYC

    How old is she?

    There can be many conditions for loss of balance and sight. The first thing that comes to mind with your video is Marek's.
    You may want to separate her so you can monitor her symptoms. Offer her some poultry vitamins that contain B vitamins or crush a human B-Complex vitamin and put it in her food.

    See that she is staying hydrated and eating.
