    Got 5 babies today @ the feed store and one looked dead when I got them home. She (barred rock) was on her stomach - legs splayed out and stiff. After a few minutes of holding her, she moved a bit. Warmed her under the heater and she came back. However, she wobbles and walking is an issue. She reclines against the side of the box with her legs out. She is much smaller than her sister and the others I got today. Have been raising chickens for awhile and this is something new. Advice?
