    This is the second time I have come across this. They get super weak....legs have no control etc. They look to be completely delirious.
    I can't be the first person to see this in young chicks. What am I doing wrong?
    Most recovered with antibiotics, poli vi sol and sunshine, but we lost the 2 tiniest ones.

    I would love to know what this is.

    Could be Mereks disease. Sometimes they recover.
    Sorry about your losses.
    Sounds like you are doing everything you can to save them.... good luck.
