    I had a chick that had regular seizures. They were frequent when she was small and less so as she aged. She grew to be a lovely pullet, but always had neurological issues. We lost her at 9 mos old, when she just went a bit catatonic. She'd run & play and lay her eggs, but she was alway wobbly and would tip over when excited.

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    Forgot to say ours was part of an otherwise overwhelmingly fluffy, ginormous shipment of chicks from Meyers we resold as teens. I kept her because I felt she wasn't fit to go elsewhere.
