This is just my opinion now but here goes. Sounds like he needs to be fed more often. If he is always hungry maybe the does isn't feeding him. Have you seen him suck? Have you wormed him? Or the doe? Lyman worms ours very early with about 1/2 cc Valbazen and they seem to be ok. That is very hard to watch a little one when you know there is something wrong and don't know what. Some of ours did that and I started bottle feeding them more. I try to watch and when their sides just fill out nice, I figure they had enough. By 3 weeks old they are usually getting milk from the quart size bottle with a lamb nipple but this is if I am solely bottle feeding them and the the bottle isn't full but it is more than 8 oz. How long has he been like this?
