    I have two young birds walking with an upright stance a lot like a penguin.
    They are too young to be egg bound, have no swelling anywhere and are eating.
    Any ideas????
    Thank you

    Relaxing with my Buns
    How young are they?
    They could be constipated, egg bound, or have to lay their first egg and it feels weird lol]

    Will get pic, they are eating normally and seem to be pooping normally too.
    I have googled the symptoms and get several results with pics that look like mine but all suggest egg bound and it's not that
    Will keep looking for answers and try some medicated food and vitamins
    They have been wormed

    Update - fed them medicated chick starter and a supplement called Kicken Chicken, not sure which one helped but both are improving and almost back to normal
