    hey y’all! Quick question from this newbie. I have a little chick that still has energy. But is obviously ill. But refuses to eat. (No respiratory junk, but weak.). Both sick chicks are really thin, and have been since I got them. They also. And With Coccisidosis. Could they have worms as well as having had cocci? Should I treat them to be on the safe side. Because even the one that has ate this whole time hasn’t seemed to gain weight. The other that won’t eat. I have tried softening its food, dog food, fresh strawberries eggs, etc. I am to the point that I think I may need to syringe feed it a bit, to at least get it some nutrition. How would I do this? Or would you suggest anything else? Thanks y’all!
