    We have a 5 day old Bantam who seems to be in distress. She peeps constantly, she doesn't stand up or walk and when she does, she wobbles and seems very weak. She stays away from the rest of the flock and I sometimes find her laying on her side sleeping in the waterer and/or the corner of the brooder. We're afraid she won't make it through the day. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks~

    Thanks for your reply. Sadly, she died shortly after I posted this yesterday :-(
