    this little gal has not grown like the others . its about half the size. we have had it seperated from the others for about 2wks and it seemed to be growing some and it has grown some feathers.today however, it has been having runny,yellow poop and it is staggering. almost acts as if it has gone blind. is there anything to do for it?
    thanks,
    lori

    If the growth has not been the same as the others, it may be a failure to thrive. You can keep doing what you are doing (separating it was a great idea!) and maybe give a try of adding V&E to the water for an extra boost. It can't hurt.

    Good luck.
