I noticed this today that my dove isn't standing properly anymore, she's 3 weeks old and just yesterday she was walking, eating and flying just like any other day until today. ShesS staying on the ground, she can't perch on the sticks anymore, She isn't drinking water as before, she's rolling over side to side and sometimes on her back, her legs are sometimes stretched like if you ever saw a bird dying it'll start to stretch out it legs and stiffen up (but her legs are just stretching infront of her body?
I don't know what's happening?
Please help? Any solutions?

This doesn't sound very good at all. @sourland may have more of an idea what's happening.

Are its parents still feeding it?
No, for some unexplained reason, they stopped feeding her at a very early stage, where she still had her yelllow downy feathers on her but he eyes and some feathers were open and out. I noticed because she hasn't had her crop filled for like 3 days and she was just skinny, flat and it felt like i was holding a feather in my hand.
When I took her, and fed her, she gained weight and started growing great as she should. She was 3+ weeks old... Until that strange condition or sickness took her... She's dead now
