I have a 7 week and four days old silkie who is wobbly. He eats fine and drinks, is not thin or fat, but walks as if he is crouched all the time. My other chicks are fine. He used to walk normally, and started "crouching" all the time when he was about 4-5 weeks old. I think he pooing fine, but I am not sure. He does not jump, but can flap his wings normally. He does not dig like a normal chicken. The coop is clean, and there is no sign of lice, although there might be some, but I don't think so. Is this genetic, or could he have an inner ear problem affecting his balance. He does fall over when he runs quickly, and usely goes a little bit to one side when he runs.
Please post a response if you have an idea, and thank you if you do.
