HI I am fairly new to raising chicks my first chick Oreo was born 2 months ago she's partly blind so I sometimes have to clean her... well when I did I saw some of her bones sticking out she looks almost like a skeleton but she eats none stop. she can not seem to gain weight and she's stopped growing I have tried everything I am open to anything at this point she was premature when she was born and has fought so hard I don't want her to die.
Can she see well enough to get to the food? You can supplement her feed with 24-26% gamebird feed, scrambled egg, low sodium canned tuna, and small pieces of raw or cooked liver and hamburger. Worming her may also help with fenbendazole SafeGuard liquid goat wormer 1/4 ml given by mouth, and repeat in 10 days.
