I bought 12 guinea keets last weekend. All was going well until I noticed one laying on its side with its legs curled underneath it. Now, it runs around using its wings and the hocks of its legs. I have been giving oral doses of Vitamin B2 supplement, but there has been no visible change. What should I do?

Vitamin B2 is not going to solve its problems.

You did not mention what you are feeding these keets, but if it is chick starter, it does not have the levels of protein, lysine, methionine and niacin that is needed for proper development of the keets.

If you are going to give a B vitamin, use vitamin B complex which has all the B vitamins including niacin and thiamine that they need.
