    justlearning In the Brooder

    Apr 26, 2011
    I got 6 bantams from TSC today and one just keeps flipping on her back. She'll run crazy all over the brooder box like she can't control her body and then fall face down and sometimes flip on her back. The other chicks are already picking on her. One keeps trying to eat her toes. What is going on? This is the first time (we only started chickens last year) that we have not had one thrive.
