    Well, I couldn't view the video you provided but it sounds like you could be dealing with a nutritional deficiency at that age. Encephalomalacia can happen from feed stored too long or vitamin E deficient diet. Supplement water with a soluble powder vitamin/electrolyte labeled for poultry every day until symptoms disappear, use fresh feed each day, and keep the brooder environment clean. I hope that helps your chicks.
