    I bought them from a local feed store and they seemed to be fine when they were only a few days old but then they started just laying around sitting back on their but like this.
    We bought 5 of them and out of the 5, 3 of them have started this does anyone have any idea what is wrong with them? I would appreciate any help I can get at this point.

    Cornish Cross. If you don't control their growth rate with restricted diet, they grow too fast for their legs to support them.
