    I have a week old chick that was waddling around the brooder a few days ago and for some reason he is sluggish and looks to be unstable. He wants to lay down all the time. He also is breathing significantly faster than the other two chicks with him. He has all the food and water he wants and i even saw him drink. Should i be concerned? A kindergarten class hatched some eggs and he was one of only three that survived more than a day after hatching. so i feel bad for the little kids that see these chicks hatch then die. Anything i can do to help Bolt out?
