Sorry, I don't know what you mean by ttk treatment...
How old is the chick, and how long has he been ill? Is he with the parents, and are they healthy?
Please tell us some more about the chick, and post a message if you can, that would really help.

He may be too young to know how to do it. Does he still have yellow plumage?

When you say he's eating, what is he eating?

Babies can learn how to drink if you dip their beaks in a cup of water (not all the beak, just half), but it can take a few tries before they learn.

So he must be 3 weeks plus, right?
When you say he eats corn, I take it you mean a pigeon mix, not just corn on its own. Because just corn wouldn't stop him starving. If he is eating enough and still thin, it's very likely he's got worms. Do you have the parents, and are they healthy? Are they wormed, vaccinated? Is there any infectious catarrh in your loft, because that can cause birds to drink too little. I don't really have a lot of information to be able to advise you...
Is this the bird you're thinking of entering for a tournament after a month's vitamin supplements?

Whereabouts are you located in the UK? Cynthia said she may be able to find an experienced rehabber near you who might help diagnose what's wrong with the baby.

Those 3-in-1 "miracle" pills don't fix anything, really, they are only an emergency measure to stop a bird from dying until your vet has had a chance to find what's wrong with it.
