    This little guy has been sick for a few days now. At first he was isolated because he had missing feathers and I thought he was dehydrated do to the fact his poo was solid. He is about 4-5 weeks old. He is now throwing up and pooping every 3-4 minutes. I got some stuff to put on him for his feathers but have no clue what to do about the other. I have been giving him sav-a-chick. Anything else I can do?

    His eyes are also pink and watery. He is still holding on.

    I'm so very sorry. :(. I hope your chick makes it.

    I also always have probiotics(probios) on hand. I keep it in the freezer for those who get diarrhea.

    Good luck. I really wish you well.
