We have a friendly, spunky Buff Orpington chick. She hatched at Privett last Wed. We bought her from a reliable feed store on Sat (two days ago). We are relative newbies. (Thank you so much for this website!) Chickie appears to be completely health. She's very active and endearing.
Chickie has an odd way of drinking water. As my son is becoming extremely attached to her, I thought I should post and ask if there is a problem lurking. She moves her neck way back when drinking water. On Sat., I even saw her fall over. It was comical, but . . . Now when drinking she moves her neck back and often sits down. Has anyone seen this before? Any thoughts on whether she's going to be OK? Thank you!
