    we have one chick (2 1/2 weeks old) who began staying in the corner of the brooder 2 days ago. It is slow to get up and when it does its wings are a bit droopy. It also seems to have developed really poor balance. I set the chicks out in the grass this afternoon so I could watch it in a different situation - it actually fell down. It also seems NOT to be growing as well as the other 2 chicks. Any ideas?

    First thought, because of the age and since it's going outside, that it's picked up a cocci infection. I'd get it on meds pronto!
