Someone please help! I got w couple day old chicks yesterday. They were all acting normal and healthy. This morning, the smallest of the 3 was sitting in a corner by itself. Checked them again after work and the same chick is now sitting on its bum, can't seem to use its legs and she's holding her wigs straight out from her body. She seems very wabbly and periodically throws her head back almost like a muscle spasm, with her eyes closed. I have NO idea what is wrong with her or what to do. I currently have her in a 5 gallon aquarium, I made a little "nest" out of some clean soft socks to help her sit upright and there's a heat lamp over the tank. She DID drink some water from an eye dropper. Has anyone ever seen symptoms like this before? I'm scared she's going to die, what do I do!!??
