    I have a 2 1/2 month old pullet chick that nearly died twice from Coccidiosis. She's bouncing back, finally, but she's just bones and feathers at this point.

    She's got free feed chick starter, plus I give her some starter mixed with water or pedialyte. I give her some scrambled eggs and some canned cat food.

    Anything else I can give her?

    Glad to hear she's better. Yogurt is great for their digestion. [​IMG]
