    Okay.. I have a weak baby that I got from tractor supply today. (No I'm not going to cull it. I'm trying to give it a chance. That's why I brought it home.) A friend said to feed it sugar water. How often do I give the water to it, and do I give the water to it during the night too?

    That was helpful! Thank you!

    "IF THE BIRDS HAD A HARD TRIP: Instead of using the standard feed and water suggestions listed, try this: Put 6 more tablespoons of sugar in each gallon of water. Then mix some of this extra sweet water with some of your feed to make a soupy mix. Give your birds this special feed and water mix for 3 to 4 days to get them over the effects of shipping."
