    Possibly Vitamin E encephalopathy, crazy chick disease. Do a google search for threads to deal with the problem. Your chick may be too far gone to do anything, if indeed that is the problem. I have no idea if the vaccine could be a factor in what you are seeing or not.

    YES It is possible.But He didn't gasp for air.And I forgot to mention that The vaccine is for Newcastle disease and its of live type.So is it possible that he was affected by the disease due to Vaccination
