    Brought home 7 chicks yesterday. All seemed active and well when purchased. This one chirped loudly all the way home. Once bedded down, she just couldn't seem to get her legs under her. Chirped loudly for awhile, then stopped. Mostly just sits like a little ball of fluff, away from the others. What's going on?

    She is probably stressed. Keep her warm and dry and hydrated. She may be fine. She may not be. Only time will tell.

    Good luck.

    I would make her a wet mash from the feed, and see if that helps. And make sure she's at the right temperature.
