Our dragons had 3 batches of eggs about 6 months ago. The first batch hatched quickly and without incident, then the 3rd batch started to hatch. We thought we must've labled them wrong as the 2nd batch didn't start to hatch until the 3rd lot was half way through. As time has gone on, we have lost about 10 babies. They didn't grow or eat (as far as we could tell), but they somehow lived for a good few months. Recently though we've found the smaller ones seem to have a neurological problem. They keep shaking their heads and they miss their live food as they don't seem to have the co-ordination. Not too long after that, they start falling over when they're trying to walk around.
We're assuming that these dragons are from the 2nd batch that had trouble hatching as we've not had any trouble at all with the majority of this years lot, and we had none of this happen last year either.

Does anyone know what could be wrong and/or what we can do to help them? It's horrible to see them going through it all. They are having calcium powder with every feed and the light and heat are as they should be too, so it's definately not an enviromental problem - besides, they are in with others who are perfectly healthy.

Any thoughts?
