    It sounds as though your chicks are acting differently than they have been? If you could give us a more complete description of what they are doing, how old they are, etc. that would be helpful.

    Are they having foot problems - where the feet spread out sideways or turn in. Any twisted toes? What kind of flooring do they have in the brooder. Newspaper is very slippery and can cause foot problems.
