    Not sure if I should post in this forum or emergencies.....

    My 3 week old EE chick has lost her ability to walk without falling over. She is even falling over and missing her food when she pecks at it. I ordered vacinated chicks from meyers, so I don't think that is a possibility. She is getting worse by the day. At this rate, I don't think she will make it much longer if I dont find a solution.

    As of yesterday, she was still eating and pooping normal. No signs of cocci.

    Any ideas? I was told possible vitamin deficiency.

    Are there legs just not strong? What bedding are you using? If is slippery, they probably have splayed leg. It's when aa day old chick is put on a bedding where they can't grip their feet on and all they do is fall.
