chicks flopping

Out of a hatch of 25, i have 3 that are not well. Flipping backwards, getting stuck on their backs, falling over. One can walk a little, then falls and cant get up, one is pigeon toed, and one scoots backwards on its butt. I get at least one like this every hatch and ot typically dies within 48 hours. No slipped tendons, no obvious deformities. Vitamins dont really help. I have these three back in the incubator so they dont get trampled and they do fine until they start moving, then it looks like three drunks in a bar fight.

Whats up with these chicks?
