Hi all,
I have a 6 year old red sex link, she is old and slow and she can't see very well.
Lately I have seen she isn't eating very well and she is very skinny.
I have tried feeding her scrambled eggs and other chicken treats but they don't seem to be working.

If anyone could help that would be great
Thanks

Wow, that is an old chicken. It could be that she can't really see the food so she isn't eating anything. If it goes on for to much longer, you may need to either cull her, or take her to the vet (I would take her to a vet anyways)

Sorry about your chicken!

6 years old is old. Maybe she's nearing a natural death. I wouldn't think she caught some illness unless you've gotten new chickens in the past few weeks, or even 2 months.
