    Hi all!

    This little cutie hatched about 36-40 hours ago. Seems to be doing well. Eating drinking, and very active but very very clumsy still. My concern is that it does this little shiver a lot (see video). I read somewhere about Mareks, and the potential of shaking being due to this. Do you think this little one seems ok?

    (Watch at the :08-:09 second mark and again at :25-:26ish)

    Too young to be Marek's.
    Do you have any Poultry Nutri-Drench? I would give her 1-2 drops twice a day for a few days to see if that helps.

    Those tremors may go away or it could be an indication of a neurological problem - time will tell.
