    I noticed yesterday that one of my Buff Orb chicks that is 1 1/2 weeks old began shaking. It does not look like cold shivering but a constant tremor. It is slight but is there... her entire body. She is eating, drinking and acting normal and is not huddling under the light. Has anyone else seen this or have insight?

    I have seen it occatinaly. Especially after they take a sand bath or after stretching but it is over in a couple of seconds. I wouldn't worry to much if she seem to be ok for the rest and if it doesn't increase in ocurrence.
