Please help. We have this bird that is fairly new. She's about 4 or 5 weeks old. When we got her, it took three days to get her to eat or drink properly. Then she was fine. Then while the birds were our roaming one day a hawk swooped down so we had to lock the birds up and start building a large run for them. Took maybe 2 days. Today we let the birds out and Winifred is acting like she did when we first got her. Not eating. Not drinking. We've been giving her chicken elixir in her water and I just started giving her molasses water from a syringe so I could watch and monitor. I've seen her take a few bites of egg, cantaloupe, tuna juice, and yogurt. Not much though. Now she's just laying on my husband and sleeping. She seems very lethargic and that her breathing is heavier than it should be. Attached is a picture of her and her poop. Thank you for any help possible

New blood. A better shot. I think it's blood?

I would get some Corid (amprollium) at your feed store right away, and treat her for possible coccidiosis. Dosage is 2 tsp (10 ml) of Corid liquid or 1.5 tsp of the powder per gallon of water for 5-7 days. You can also jumpstart her treatment with 0.2 ml or 1/4 tsp of the undiluted Corid twice a day given orally.
