    I have a Gold Laced Brahama chick hatched on the 13th of Dec that has been eating, drinking, and growing like the others are. I went in to check on them tonight and this one was laying on its side and could stand. (30 min earlier they were all running and playing including this one) When it trys to stand it just falls back. No sneezing coughing or anything else and the others dont seem to have a problem. Any suggestions?

    I actually had a 2 month old doing that tonight and read a post about someone elses bird doing that! Her bird ran itself into a wall and I am not sure what happened but it had a head injury! My bird got her head stuck under a 1 gallon waterer and was there for over an hour before I found her! I brought her in the house and gave her some food and water with electrolytes and vitamins (packet you can get at the feed store) and put her in a cage in my house where it is nice and warm and she is doing much better now!
