of his brooder mates. I've read everything on here I can find about scissorbeak hoping to help him. He gets a deep dish of oatmeal, yogurt, chick starter for breakfast. He can drink water well, and always has his beak in the regular food dish, but I don't see him swallow a lot. Tonight I gave him some chick starter 'n water and he ate a lot of that. Should I be doing more so he'll grow faster? Maybe a couple drops of Poly-vi-sol a day, or something with more protein? He's a really friendly guy, name is Spike - the oatmeal gets him so messy it looks like he has spiked hair! It seems like he deserves the best chance I can give him. None of his buddies ever pick on him either.
