In the Brooder

OK, my 3 wk old runt has diarrhea...a couple of days ago it was almost completely clear liquid coming out. Now I've added yogurt to the diet. Her poop is brown, but still liquidy...nothing fully formed. There's no white in it either, but the others don't seem to have much of that either. I gave her terramycin to help a n eye problem...that was better, now is going shut again...have to open at least once a day. I wash it with saline & even give her 2 drops of polyvisol nightly. I have electrolytes added to the water. I see her eat & drink. She gets lively when eating, but since she's only 1/3 the size, she's backing off lately...especially when I hand feed them yogurt mixed with crumbles. She only seems interested when the others are hand feeding. I do see her at the crumble feeder by herself sometimes. She is much more vocal in the last few days. When she's not eating or drinking, she seems to be resting. I'm still worried about her. How can I cure the diarrhea??
