I just received 13 chicks and everyone has been great and active for about 4-5 hours in the brooder. All of a sudden our silkie started crying out in a different kind of chirp, and I was sitting next to the brooder and no one was around her, it was so random and then she stared walking on her elbows with no apparent reason why. Not sure what to do or how to help her. We’ve had chicks before many times and this is an absolute first for us

Update:
We took the chick to the vet and it was a vitamin deficiency. We gave the chick rooster booster for a few days and it started walking normally again.
