:/One of my chicks has a hard time walking around. all he does is wobbles and falls over. we did research on this subject and all of the people said that it was merricks disease but it says that that causes weakness and this chick is certainly not weak. he is small because he can not get to his food but he peeops all the time. this is the only thing wrong with him. my children and I love this chick and would hate to see it die from this apprently not so rare and deadly disease.
