I have two young 4 1/2 month old males that I havent put outside due to their young age and our extreme temps lately. Therefore they are inside, I have been keeping their huge brooder box really clean but I know they are probably lacking protein. They are extremely picky eaters and only want feed. Due to lack of funds lately I have been giving everyone all purpose chicken feed, which I just now realize is probably not enuff protein for them. Maybe ok if freeranging but not for my inside birdies. My silkies not seeming to do so well either on it. This last week they have developed symptoms of watery poo and shaking/trembling. I thought it might be cocci and have been dosing them with Corid this last 5 days in their water, one seemed to get better but is shaking again. Could this due be to lack of protein? I will get some crickets today if anyone thinks this is a protein problem. Or are they sick sick and I need to do something else? I tried every type of protein I could think of and these guys are super particular. Wont eat mash, cant get them to peck at water with Kaytee's, only thing they want for a treat is cheese, goofy babies. Tried catfood, etc. My OTHER peababies grew up with guineas and would try anything I put out for them at least once, so I never had a prob with them not getting enuff nutrition. sigh... Ideas?
