  1. My broody just hatched a baby today. However it hardly cheeps and lays down. I put her by food but she just lays there. She does walk a few times but not much at all. She won't drink or eat
     
  2. To help explain, she keeps falling backwards. Like she can't balance so then she falls forwards and just lays there

    Give it a few hours I sometimes have weak chicks that can't really walk for several hours or more, they tend to tumble
