    Here is my black shoulder chick, probably about the same age as yours Pyxis.

    A bit hard to get the tan and grey color to show up in the photographs.

    Thanks, that helps! I too have a hard time capturing the tan in photos, but he definitely has color in his wings now. So maybe he is a BS? He'd be a purple BS.

    Well, due to not being able to find any food that was both medicated and had high enough protein, I finally gave up, bought turkey starter that's not medicated, and am giving a preventative dose of Corid in their water. Does anyone know if I can also continue to give Nutri Drench along with the Corid?

    If it has thiamine I don't think you're supposed to.

    I'll get some tomorrow!

    They did not like me cleaning their brooder today, lol. One took off flying and I had to chase it down all over the garage. Was perfectly calm once I caught it though.
