    All of a sudden my 1 1/2 week old baby chick started acting really weird & i dont know what to do. Was fine, following me around & all of a sudden started breathing & chirping very fast. Beak is slightly open. Wings slightly out instead of flat against body. Wont eat or drink. Biting at everything- her wings, my hand, her feet, my arm- everything but her food or water. Keeps falling forward. Cant really walk. What is happening? What do i do? Please help me help miss ralph.
