post #12 of 12

bri55--Have you read thru the recent emergency posts about chicks?  There is a lot of information on this site...Also, I think this same website I referenced above may be able to help you:


Some key areas to look at:


1)  Temperature:  Is it too hot (overheating could cause those symptons) or not warm enought?

2)  Floor surface:  Is it too slick for the baby chick?

3)  Food:  Are you using commercial food or your own mix? 

4)  Pep-ups:  Use Sugar water/electrolytes/cooked egg yolks

5)  Possible Splayed/Spraddled legs (see linked website)


I hope this helps!
