Chicken stuck on back


Dec 4, 2020
He gets stuck on his back about once a month give or take a week. I'm not sure how or why he's getting stuck like this I just find him this way he has no other problems what so ever and as soon as I help him back on his feet he's off and at it like normal. It's the oddest thing someone please tell me what's going on here
Found this on the internet:

Vitamin deficiencies
A thiamine deficiency can cause lack of balance and coordination. Young chickens are particularly susceptible to this, since chick feed medicated with Amprolium (a coccidiosis preventative) is a thiamine inhibitor (that's the mechanism by which Amprolium helps to protect against cocci).
The thing is he can't get himself back on his feet without help he's stuck on his back like a turtle
