    Could things get any worse?! Frozen Wing/Feet, dehydration, and lice/mites

    Thank you for the input. He is more active today and seems to be taking a step in the right direction. I tried some sugar in the water and he drank some but not a lot (still an improvement though). I have started treating him for lice and many dead ones have fallen off of him (good sign that...
