Hi. I’m so confused, yesterday my chick was fine. Today she is very lethargic, and her chirp is super raspy sounding. Almost to the point you can’t hear it. I dipped her beak in some water to see if it improved, it did to a degree, at least now it’s audible but it is still so quiet.

Update: I brought her inside under a heat lamp. The breeder told us that she had has some cases of Coccidiosis in her flocks so she gave us this powder which treats the illness the powders called Amprolium. I’m worried about her having this disease, if you have any suggestions on the symptoms that i should expect if she has this disease please tell me.

Huddling is a sign of Coccidiosis, so I'm not surprised.
Did she direct you how to give the amprolium?
Do you have any other chicks? I would watch them carefully, and treat them all.

That's about the cutest bird ever.
Yeah there are instructions to go with it. About how to put it in the water. After I brought her inside (she is in my room XD) she started drinking but her chirp is still very hushed.
