Is there something wrong with this chick?
I got her via mail delivery from mypetchicken.com last Wednesday. She is slightly smaller than the others and always seems to have her head tucked/hanging. I've seen her eat and drink and walk.

I'm wondering, is this symptomatic that there is something wrong with her or that she is weak or unwell?

Maybe try some poultry drench... chick vitamins and electrolytes
Or you could give her Poly-Vi-Sol w/o Iron... (infant vitamin drops) Just a drop or 2 a day.

Sugar water might perk her up a little too.

Could she have eaten a wood chip? Could be impacted crop...
Smell her breath... If it is stinky could be sour crop.

Sorry not sure... either way I would get her those vitamins

Good luck!
