    Give him some electrolyte supplement and hope he makes it.

    Electrolytes with vitamins and mineral. Make sure he is getting niacin (Vitamin B3). You can get this at Walmart in the vitamin isle. You need 100mg per 1 gallon of water.

    Is the brooder running correctly?

    I'd dip the bills of any others you have in Poly Vi Sol infant vitamins without added iron...it can't hurt if you do it a few times but it may help any others that may be weakening.
