    Hi, my week old chick is weak, wobbly, shaking and will only turn it's head to the right. Anyone know what this could be? I've had two other chicks in the batch die but they didn't act this way. Thanks

    Sounds like it could be sick. Keep him warm, give him plenty of water, and try to give him some electrolytes. Best of luck.
