    He is 2 days old and all the others can stand and walk. He can stand but he falls like 2 seconds later he falls, it looks like one of his feet slip underneath the other then he falls on his side.
    Here is a video and some pictures.
    My mom was thinking maybe its wing, because wings help banlance and one looks bigger than the other. So heres a pic:

    Its a bit hard to see but he has a piece of his wing missing we think. Maybe deformed.

    Here hes lying on his side with his feet out

    if it is a wing problem could I fix it?
    and its definately not splayed legs take a look at this video:

    I could really use some help so if you have ANY suggestions let me know!

    I would isolate him and prop him upright. Are the feet crimped looking
    all the time?

    Quote:no they are fine she can move her legs too. It seems as she cant balance herself, check out the video though it could help.
