    I have a 2-3 week old chick (largest of our 6 chicks)that when I got home from work is not walking well and is laying down a lot. Not sure what happened but looking for causes or what to assess for and how to fix. I'm new to chickens and at a los. Any help is appreciated! I'm afraid of having two disappointed little girls if something happens to their blue Belle. Thanks!

    Can you describe how she's not walking well in more detail? Is she off balance? Not wanting to walk? Are there any other symptoms?

    You could offer some vitamins and electrolytes (like Sav-A-Chick or Poultry Nutri-Drench). It may perk her up. [​IMG]
