    I have a seven week old Cornish Cross that has lost her sense of balance. She is smaller and a little discolored compared to the others we have. She falls over often and her head bobbles at times. She was removed from the others for the past two days and is eating and drinking normally. I thought maybe she wasn't getting enough food and water since she is smaller and could have been starving or dehydrated. We've also had issues with predators and are wondering if she was attacked. I haven't seen any wounds on her though. Any suggestions?

    Did you hatch them or get them? Have you added new chickens before that? I would keep an eye out for someone else getting those symptoms.
