I found one of my little australorps laying on the floor of the brooder...he looks tottaly healthy, nothing suspicious on his legs, beak, eyes, under wing... nothing, but when I put him down he does not run, but moves around with his wings spread out and then he lays on the floor while other chicks walk over him... then I noticed he started twitching also, so I took him and now he is resting in my hand... he pooped a little, poop looks normal... so, I don't know...should I separate him from the others so they don't stomp on him...or does anyone have any idea what could be wrong with him?
10 day old chick twitching, lethargic

Yeah I wouldn't put him in a separate box. Sadly this doesn't sound good so make him as comfy as you can.
Well, I am happy to say that he might be better. He slept over in our bed for a night, protesting and squeezing up against us whenever we would move, and in the morning he started eating and drinking again, so we put him back wit h the others. For a day he was still a bit slower, but today he is as chirpy as the rest. So I hope he will be just fine.
