    I have a 5 week old black sumatra chick that shakes a lot. It started when I took him out of my garage to a coop in the backyard. I have him with three other chicks but it is the only one that shakes a lot. He eats and drinks and walks around but he is shaking the whole time. What could be wrong with it? Does it need any vitamins?

    I would recommend a check up with a veterinarian. This may be a pathogenic or genetic issue. It does not sound like a nutritional issue, especially since the other chicks are unaffected.
