My silkie roo is about a year old. He can't walk. When he tries he stumbles and tumbles all over the place. I have him separated and this has been going on for 2-3 months now. Any suggestions?

Could you describe some more of his actions? Does he hold his head in the right place? Does he flap about going backwards like he can't hold his head correctly?

From what you have described he could be suffering from wry/crook neck or something like mareks disease.

Sorry to hear your roo is having a problem. You can post more about him over on the emergencies/diseases forum:

Have you taken him to a vet? Are there any home remedies you've tried? More information could be helpful.
