Hi, welcome to BYC!

Is your little one kind of stretching out, kicking and flapping? I'm wondering if she isn't dust bathing.

Is she eating and drinking ok?

Nice to have you join us!

So glad you joined! What breeds of chickens did you get? You may want to check out the Raising Baby Chicks forum for help.

I live in Florida been here for 30+ years and love it. My little chick that was on its back and side is doing ok today she/he is running around eating happy, maybe she/he wasn't feeling good that day. strange. but thanks for replying I have seen them dust their feathers off and play in the sand
