    I have a young barred rock cross pullet that is having balance problems - already lost one other with the same problem. Any idea on what could be causing this and how to treat it

    Greetings from Kansas, JackieAnn, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined us but sorry about the problem you're having. I'd post detailed symptoms about living conditions (indoor/outdoor, age of birds, additional symptoms, etc.) in the link below: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Someone may be able to chime in with some helpful advice. Good luck to you!!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, wish it was under better circumstances. Have the chicks sustained any falls / bumps or pecks to the head? Do they eat/drink and poo normally?

    Sounds like the ER forum is the place to find some answers, give them as much detail as you can.

    Best of luck!
