    Please let me know if there is something other than nutridrench that I should be trying to help my 3 week old chick.

    She is staggering, cannot balance or walk properly, perfers to lay down and is very timid with this others now. She attempts to peck at her food but most often misses. She cannnot fly either, it causes her to head dive into the ground. Falls over when she walks a few steps.

    She was vacinated for mareks, so I don't think that is the issue.

    Appreciate any info to share!

    Does it look like she has curled toes?
