    Can you access medications? If so, then maybe try treating for coccidiosis but I'm not an expert in this field, but it seems like you need to do something ASAP. Giving yoghurt is fine, also vitamins (or even a bit of honey in water) would be good.

    I have no honey but can I use sugar water and I don't like using medicine as the vets here don't sell or care for chickens much so I use natural herbs as medicine as it works for me but never had coccidiosis before I read the oregano and cinnamon is good for coccidiosis

    If it's cocci you need to get Corrid (Amprolium) or Sulmet.
