In the Brooder

i noticed today that three chickens are acting odd. chicken 1. she seems disoriented, almost drunk. i noticed when i let the girls out today, she was just getting pecked on like crazy and stumbling everywhere. i think they pecked on her because she was falling in their way, they have left her alone since then. but when i went back down she was just sitting in the corner. i noticed her sitting alone yesterday too, but did not noticed the falling over/stumbling. chicken 2. it looks as tho her front left 'shoulder' area is bulging out. think a humpback but on her front. she was standing with disoriented chicken too. i saw her hanging in the coop yesterday, but did not notice the bulge. chicken 3. just hanging out with the others puffed up. i separated all three from the flock. they have food and water, i added acv and vitamins to it. thoughts on this? puffiness made the think cocci, but i dont smell it. i have not noticed poops yet, but we do deep litter, so not as easy to notice.
