Almost 4 week old silkie chick has developed a very jerky head. Sometimes looks like bobbing, but mostly jerking to the left while looking up. It displayed these symptoms slightly when only a week old, but I thought it was just curious and looking up at me over and over. Now the jerky movement is extreme and causes it to move in circles. When I hold it, it seems to settle down. It is eating and drinking. Is there anything I can do?
