I'm probably just overly concerned since one of the four chicks did not make it. However, today One of our new chicks was standing up looking kind of stumbly, fell over and then rolled onto its back and legs in the air and didn't really fight to right itself. I scooped it out and it seemed kind of limp. After about a minute of examining her I set her down on the ground outside the brooder and she started pecking and being completely normal. Is this just a case of a really sleepy chick? I've never seen one on its back before. They are about a week old. Thanks!
