    I have chicks and turkeys, 1 week old, they have been ill with a respiratory sickness and are on antibiotics, the chicks still seem to be doing well, eating and drinking and gaining weight but the poults are really small still and not eating or drinking half as much, I have 20 of them, any ideas on getting them to eat more etc, foods they may really love. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try giving them a little greek yogurt mixed with there starter. The antibiotics may have been little hard on them. The yogurt should get their guts back on track and encourage them to eat more. Good luck!
