    i got my 25 from mcmurray today. all are alive & seem to be doing well except this one. she shakes her head constantly. would this be a neurological thing & i just wait to see what happens or is this a sign of a disease/illness? i'm going to post on the diseases forum too. thanks for any input.

    My buff orp chick did the same thing . I thought she would die. By the time she was 3 weeks old she quit and is now 2 years old and just fine!
    Just curious is she a hatchery chick?

    Opp's I see yours came from Murray Mcmurray so did mine. It must be a genetic thing in their breeding stock.
