    I bought a Silver Laced Wyandotte today along with a Rhode Island Red. The Rhode Island Red is running around and acting complete normal, the Wyandotte however sways slightly when it stands and when originally set into the brooder it seemed to have difficulty walking in the shavings.

    It appears to be eating, drinking and pooping normally but whenever it stands still it sways.

    Is this something I should e concerned about?

    Not yet. If it is still swaying after a few days get back to us. It takes a while to get their land legs. They are pretty cramped up in the egg.

    Good luck.
