Hi...Only one of my 2 week old chicks (NH Red) drinks water and then her head falls backwards and rolls back and forth and then I have to help it up...what is happening? Should I worry? She eats and acts fine otherwise. Thanks for any help! New chick mama here!!

Might be a stargazer. Try giving her Poly-Vi Sol baby vitamins (no iron). I've read it's caused by a vitamin deficiency (Vit E & Selenium). Use the search bar at the top of this page and enter "stargazer or wry neck". Lot's of helpful posts.
