    check for mites or lice use sevin dust if them or mama does and you could try giving scambled eggs to see if it helps the weak one

    mites only come out once they start roosting at night while lice live on the birds. if you check in the day time and see nothing wait an hour or so after they start to roost and go check for mites and make the lil one is staying nice and warm as well

    i see at least 2 cockerels maybe 3 but still a bit young to tell for sure

    cool thanks for that, I will look tonight it doesn't get dark here until about 9pm so they stay up really late! I have the little guy under a heat lamp now eating eggs and some yogurt he seems to be a little chirpy
