    Alright when I first noticed, he wasn't really running fast, and one of his feet kepto losing strength when he ran for like a second, but he just got up and kept running. And he couldn't fly as high, and I found green poop in his cage, he hasn't eatentered in a large part of the day but I did give him water, and he looked like he kinda wanted the food, but his head shamed and ignore it eventually, he did eat the meal worms, and he ate them fast. Eventually he started eating the chicken feed again.

    A few hours later, his head was twasted and lost balanced when he tried to stand up. At first it was to the side but now he looks up. What's wrong with him? Is there a treatment? And can someone tell me what disease he has.
