Help! Chicken lost tons of weight/ and molting-pictures included

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My chicken Lela has lost a lot of weight and I thought at first had to do with the stress of her hard molt. After watching her for the past couple of weeks, and giving her lobster shell, feather fixer pellets, and deworming her with Wazine. I am at loss of what else to do. Today she didn't even want electrolytes and was turning her nose up to organic yogurt, her favorite sad.png I've been giving her these supplementations over the course of the past 2 weeks and thought I was seeing progress but today we're back to square one. She's a 2 1/2 year old Isa brown and has no watery eyes or discharge from the beak, her throat is clear, her breathing is relatively normal and her poop is somewhat watery but I believe that's only because she's not eating much at all. I took pictures, one is just of her standing in the sun, she's taking naps and the other is of her back with the shafts from her new feathers still there. I've checked for mites and lice, I see no eggs or irritation. Please help I don't know of she'll make it through the week... sad.png
