    One of my 4 week old blue silkie chicks head/neck seems to wobble back and forth when it walks. Sometimes it looks fine then suddenly the head begins to bob back and forth. I didn't notice it until the day after I got them home. Only one chick is affected, the other three seem normal. Has anyone seen Silkies with wobbly looking heads/necks? Could it be sick, or is this normal behavior?
