I have two 10wk old SLW. This week I have noticed a sudden and significant decrease in the amount of food both hens are eating. They are eating some but not nearly as much as last week. I have made no significant changes to their diet. This is what I usually feed them each day. Free choice starter crumbles 2-3 fist full of greens (spinach usually) 1/4 large bunch broccoli 1/4 -1/2 C Steamed pumpkin flesh 1/3 C Oats or brown rice (cooked) Corn (a special treat on super cold nights, usually warmed up w/ soy beans) 2 C 5 grain scratch w/ BO sunflower seeds Grit Water w/ ACV The ladies no longer race to eat scratch out of my hand. The cup of scratch that is usually emptied before I even leave their pen, isn't this week. They don't want their favorite warm corn and soybeans treat either. Not even yogurt can tempt them to finish their veggies. They just 'peck' at their food try a bit and wander away. Not typical behavior for them. However, I got them some meal worms yesterday and they went NUTS. Stealing them out of each others beaks etc. So they are hungry and interested in eating something just not what i have out for them. I haven't noticed any physical changes in either hen. I can not see any discharge from their eyes, nose or ears. They smell fine. I don't hear any funny noise when they breathe and I can't hear any funny noises in their chest either. They are as active and as alert as ever. The only change to their routine or environment has been the removal of their rooster. We live in the city so the rooster had to go asap. We also removed their brooder lamp. We weren't really using the lamp anymore. The lamp was turned on to lure them in to the hen house at dusk and that is about it. They finally learned to go in on their own and it was in the way so we removed it. Any suggestions on how to get them to eat more or why they stopped eating are appreciated. Thanks.
