Hi I'm looking for some help I have a red golden pheasant that can't hold it's head up it's 4 weeks old and it looked ok this mornning and it's 1 out of 4 it seems to have a problem with it's right side can anyone tell me what this might be or cause this. These birds have never been outside and are in a brooder with white paper towels on the floor and they get changed every other day and they get fresh food & water 2 times a day.
Thanks for any help.

What kind of food are you giving? Any chance of contact with mold, mildew? Sounds like botulism or a partial paralysis of some sort. Any issues with the legs or balance?

Feeding Agway Game Starter 26% protein, partial paralysis fits the way it's acting it can't get around very good the right side seems messed up I have it seperated from the others and there calling back and forth there are no signs of mold or mildew, the birds are inside.
Thanks for the reply
