    My little chick wont stop shaking its head. It does this when its awake, when it sleeps it stops. It is alert, and can walk around.

    I think this may be the one I helped out.

    circling head, twisted back=toxoplasmosis
    but it's rare
    a central nervous system disorder caused by protozoa=toxoplasma gondii
    does not say what to do for it

    Sorry that's all I could find about problems affecting the head

    Thank you! I wondered about brain damage due to lack of ozygen during hatching. Just a thought.

    I hope he gets to be ok he is SO cute. I think you should put on some music to suit, video him and send it off to funniest videos so you can pay for the vet [​IMG] He is really cute. It doesnt seem to bother him to much. It is very curious that it stops while sleeping....
