    Hi,

    I have 46 CX's that are 4 weeks old. I have 2 that are just laying around. When I put their feed in the morning they are very happy to see I have food coming. Well this morning I had two that were just laying there and wouldn't get up. I moved them over to the feeder and they stood up to eat but their balance was off. I got them to walk a little by themselves but they were walking goofy and only went so far and just sat down. I really am at a loss of what to do.

    I forgot to add that one of them always has his feathers ruffled out and he isn't very responsive when I pick him up. The other one looks like he is sitting on his butt and his legs kind of stick out. Help!

    Thank you!

    Kristen
