    Is it a day old chick? If it was just born, I could be several factors...genetics, poor humidity during incubation/hatching or vitamin deficiency in breeder flock.

    That's great news. I guess I should have also said that fresh hatchlings do take some time to get their feet going under them. Glad to hear everything is ok.
