upright chickens

Sussex chick 6 weeks old went from walking, flying, and running normally to the next day standing up right like a penguin. No visible injuries. Does not seem in ay pain. Eats and drinks normally. Just wake standing straight up.. What is this?

Thank you.

I'm sorry, but I have no idea. There isn't enough information included with the question. I hope this chick is OK. Without a lot more information, I couldn't begin to guess what is going on. This is not something I think I have experienced before in chickens. I'll post this to our Facebook page and see if anyone is familiar with this symptom.
