    I'm new here, although got tons of great ideas just from Google and you all come up.
    BUT, I have a 12 week old chick who does this weird thing. I've raised chickens before but have never ever ever seen this.
    She lays her head on her back, sometimes walks backwards, other times just sits there (happens a lot, like every 5 minutes). Got her from a friend who said about 2 weeks ago she had accidently startled the group and ever since she's been doing it.
    Does anyone know what it might be?

    Sounds like she had a bump or peck to the head. Please post in detail at "Emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread - photos of how she stands, etc. would be very helpful.

    I'm puzzled. I'd love to find out what's up with your chick.
