    Could be a vitamin deficiency, probably vitamin B. Buy some vitamin B complex tablets at a pharmacy, crush one tablet into powder, mix
    in about 5ml/cc water. Stir it well and use an eyedropper to dribble it onto the side of their beak to drink. You can also crush a few tablets into powder and sprinkle it on top of their feed to eat in that manner.
