    i have a 24 hour old bantam chick that i hatched in the incubator. All her 'sisters'are fine. However she can't stand! I have been feeding and watering her with a dropper. She tries to use her wings to push her self up. It is as if her legs just won't work right. Below is a video. Any ideas? I have a video but since i am on a mobile device it wont upload. my email is [email protected] . I can send it to you.

    Same thing happened to me! Idk what it is but it started happening over time for my chick she still eats and drinks but just cant stand. Maybe it can be a reaction to something. Have you been feeding them any vitamins? lacing the water? What type of starter are you feeding them?
