    I would be giving him probiotics daily and perhaps some chicken vitamins to increase his immunity. Also if you could take in a couple of his fresh droppings to a vet to get a fecal float and a gram stain to look for fungus, enteritis bacteria, worms, and coccidia. He has had so many medicines that he could have an overgrowth of fungus such as candida.
