I would call a vet. Babies go downhill very fast. Is he weezing at all? If so it could be pnemonia. We had a baby that got extremely sick from this and was a miracle she pulled out!

no, thank god he is not weezing.

Are you sure it isn't just dusty hay? My mini starts having cold-like symptoms if I start lacking on her bedding and hay...

However, if it has been going on for three days, I would see a vet.

Hope your little one heals up!
