Spraddle leg?

by Jodie
(La Crosse, WI)

Hello, I have a baby cockatiel that is 12 days old. It is the oldest one in the clutch, and it's siblings are fine but it keeps falling over on it's side and can't seem to use it's legs quite right. It seems otherwise healthy and is eating well and gaining weight, the only other oddity is it didn't open it's eyes until a few days after it's younger siblings. I had thought perhaps splay leg but the legs don't jut out to either side of it, it falls on it's side with both legs sticking to one side. Any thoughts as to what it may be? Thank you.

Baby bird falls over

No, I don't know. Please take the bird to an avian vet for help.
