    Chances are she's just taking a bit more time getting her 'sea legs'. [​IMG]
    Be sure that none of the other chicks are picking on her, and she's drinking and eating soon. Generally when a newborn chick sees the others drinking, she'll do so, also. But I'd keep an eye on her just to be positive.

    I had on that would just stand there for the longest time before taking very slow and sure steps. It lasted about 5 days, they she was running with the rest.

    wobbling? Oh no! Is she eating and drinking? maybe a little vitamines in her water might help. Maybe you should try the emergencie section before things get worse. The experts there will know what to do.

    Good morning, Wine Country ~

    How is your chick doing today? Does she seem a little more active?
