    Hmm.. it could be due to the fluctuating temps. I know a good plant for them to eat is Echinacea. This helps with colds for humans. It is very safe for them to eat and, from what I read, is also good for building immunity to Cocci. I don't know the details, but if you can, find some echinacea leaves and feed them to her. See if you see any improvement. [​IMG]
