    New chicken family In the Brooder

    I have a 2 week old Leghorn (?sex?) that runs backwards! It (Sammy) is still in the brooder, and runs into the walls. Sammy does it alot - not just when startled.
    Is this normal?
    Does Sammy have some neuro-disorder?
    I have not seen Sammy scratch yet. It's brooder mate - a Silkie named Gloria - is a great scratcher!
    Weird - huh?
