    The dancing like Elaine is what worries me now that was odd the first time I saw it and to imagine a chicken doing that wow ....... Not good ......

    Is she free range or locked in a coop all day ????

    What is she eating ????

    Are you putting anything in the water ?????

    Did you give any meds yet ?????

    And 4 weeks you say ......

    Any head twitching not bobbing but twitching ???????
