    Been lethargic since hatching and on day 1-3 my chicks are on their backs with feet in the air? Any ideas?

    I had one do that. I tried to make her as comfortable as possible (laying her down normally) but she was constantly sleeping... From the time the symptoms showed it was a couple hours and she died. I hope everything works out for you tho!
