    We have hatched out 11 chicks the past three days but we have two that don't seem able to stand on their own, their legs go straight out both sides, they seem healthy and are very vocal. Are they possibly diseased or just having trouble getting their coordination?

    It sounds like spraddle leg. If you can post pictures it makes it easier for us to understand what your describing. But here is a url to help you.
