She is three days old today and she looks perfectly formed including her legs and feet. When she stands its like she leans back on her haunches and stumbles backwards often. Most of the time she wedges herself up to brooder wall with her back to it. She is not eating or drinking. Tonight I dipped her beak in propel and hand fed her some starter crumbles and separated her from the other babies. Any idea of what the problem is and how I can fix it? PLEASE HELP!

I've had this same problem with an 11 day old chick. I've been giving the vitamins and helping her eat but it has been 3 days now and she doesn't seem much better.
