I just posted about one of my new two day old chicks non stop chirping.....the other chick seems to hold its wings out and stumble when it walks. It is eating and drinking. This is our first time with such young chicks, I don't know what to expect. It's sibling runs around the brooder like crazy, but this one just stumbles a few steps and stops.

I think it was too hot....I raised the light and the chick is already coming to life more. Yay!

I generally brood between 85-90 the first week than down 5 degrees a week. Glad to hear it's looking better.
