    2 of my day old coturnix chicks suddenly can't hold up their heads although they are still stumbling around the brooder. Is their anything I can do for them? They weren't like this a few hours ago and the other 8 chicks seem fine.

    Hey, how are they doing? They might have just been tired from hatching? :eek:

    The one that this thread was about is fine now but sadly the tuxedo one and one other have died. So i have 8 chicks that are a week old now.
