    hi, we got six Day-Old chicks on Monday. All were vaccinated except the one Silkie because she’s a bantam.
    The Silkie is eating and drinking and alert, however, she is very wobbly. Her legs seem strong and not splayed from what I can tell, and her toes see fine too. She was getting aggressively picked on by his others from day one so we separated her into her own brooder.
    She will walk a bit and seems normal, then just kind of tips over.
    Not sure if there is a neurological issue or disease and what I should do.
    Any advice is appreciated.
    We have raised over 50 chicks over the years and never experienced this. Thanks!

    Do you have any Poultry Nutri-Drench? I would give her 1-2 drops a couple of times a day to see if that helps. She may need a little boost.

    Yes, I do. I will try that. You don't dilute it, just do 1-2 drops straight, correct?
    Thank you!
