Hi all!

I have a chick almost 4 weeks old, who seemed fine until this morning. I weighed her and she only weighs 93 grams, and was all huddled up most of the day? Very sleepy, I felt her crop this evening as it is empty - saw her eating and drinking just yesterday? No bloody poop, and I have been treating their water for the last 7 days with coxiprol (corid) in their water as a precaution for coccidiosis, I have just stopped this. they are eating medicated chick starter. Thanks all!

Pictures of the brooder would be helpful.
What is the bedding in the brooder?
How many chicks?
Have they been on the ground at all?
Where are you brooding them?
What dose amprolium did you give them in their water for one week?
Were they eating medicated starter during the amprolium water treatment?

Added some pics of the brooder - they are on untreated pine shavings, 7 chicks total. I’m using a large portacot with a lid. They haven’t been outside on the ground as of yet. I’m brooding them in my lounge, no drafts or anything. They are using a heat plate for warmth. I was dosing at 2ml per litre of water, 12 percent amprollium I believe. and yes they continued to eat medicated feed which my vet said would be fine? Also she is walking okay, just hunched up. No wheezing or heat breathing
