    I have a chicken that is sitting down a lot. Doesn't get up and move a lot but have seen eating a little. Age is between 7-8 weeks.

    I don't really know a lot about this, but just check for marek's disease because you don't want it to infect your flock if it is that or another bad contagious thing. Good luck!
