    Hello,
    I have 3 sick chicks they are about 3 weeks old, two are unable to stand but are alert and sleep a lot. The third is very lethargic and he seams to not be able to use his legs. His head often hangs down and I am forced to make him drink water. All three of the chicks eyes are clear.They are Polish, Easter Egger, and Silkie.
