How is your poult doing? Some people had mentioned that they may need a vitamin supplement if they are acting strange it might be malnutrition. Just a thought.

Probably a defect from the hatching, is his eyes watery or is he sneezing. id keep him in his own box. if its not eating or drinking i wouldn't give him much longer. i bought a chick now knowing but it had similar symptoms and it lived 7 days :(
