don't sound too good. I cannot remember what causes that.
I will find out and let you know. cutidead (member here) would know, I will contact him.

there is another member that might know.

what are you feeding him? does he have a heat lamp on half his cage?

Im going to quote myself from another thread elsewhere on the net:

The farmer I bought some emu chicks from told me to put vit. B complex liquid into their water everyday and if they developed the neck problem you described.

Seems B vitamins are super important to the little guys. I've given thiamine shots before to other animals, but dunno if you should yet for the emu chick.

i.e. if you have not already, go to the store and get some liquid vit. B complex and add it to the water (few ddrops to turn it yellow) and make sure the bird is drinking enough. Could be something else but start there and look into vit. B deficiency in n emu chicks.
