    I have one tom and 3 hens. They seem fine, but have stopped eating. They might eat a little but not very much. Does anyone know any general reasons to why this could happen?

    Is there something wrong with their food, is it moldy or stale. Have you tried offering them scratch or sunflower seeds to see if it's them or the food.

    I have not changed their food but I do know it is not old or stale. I will try scratch feed this evening and see if anything changes.

    That is quite strange. Is their weight affected?
