Ok. So I'm new to chickens- have had them less than a year. Live in humid tn but its fall now and getting cooler. I think several of my hens are molting. We had a fun of resp disease about three weeks ago I gave all 30 chickens a shot every night for 3 days. I've been feeding them oatmeal with applesauce and scrambled eggs about two to three times a week. One of my hens wouldn't leave the perch so I brought her in and realized how skinny she was. So I've been feeding her wi a syringe. So I started feeling my others and many of them are really thin. But they are eating and drinking. So I thought I should worm them since it was such a humid summer. I've read tons of threads about worming. I don't want to use something in water because I want to know that each one got a dose. So...I went to tractor supply and they didn't have the valdzene that I have read about. So I got the liquid safeguard 10%. But I just read that if they are molting to not give safeguard!!!! This is so crazy!!!! Why are my hens not giving me eggs and why are they loosing weight!!!
