He seems very weak this morning I have given him water but he doesnt seem interested like he did last night when he first came to us. He is low energy today I am sure he is hungry... doesnt seem scared or stressed he loves being held... Please help with any advice on what to feed him..
We got them eating egg soup (basically watered down egg) using a medicine syringe for the first few days. Once they got all their energy back, we started feeding them chick feed. Unfortunately, after doing some research, we found that the chick feed isn't good for them. But the egg soup made a HUGE difference. They got pretty strong and had loads of energy.
