A few days ago, I noticed one of my Red Ranger chicks was walking strangely, more of a waddle, few-steps-sit-down; then yesterday, it wasn't walking anymore at all, and seem to rock back into a "sitting" position on it's butt. Today, the poor thing was having trouble just staying upright, kept sprawling over on it's side, so we finally just put it down. Now, however, after doing some research on it's symptoms, I'm getting a little scared. I have 100 (Well, 99 now) broiler chicks and 25 layer pullets; one of the pullets was in with the Re Ranger, as her buddies have decided she's very tasty. I don't have pictures and we threw the carcass out...any advice would be wonderful.
