    Just went to brooder and found one of my 5 week old OEGB's on her back. Sat her up and her toes on both feet are all curled up.

    She is shivering but shouldnt have been as brooder is nice and warm.


    Edited to add: no cold/viral symptoms. Was eating and standing fine yesterday at feeding time. Brooder is a raised pen with no access to ground or other older birds.
