Rubbing my chin hairs..
My Orpington has lot a ton of weight in the past few days! She used to weigh 7 pounds now she's down to just over 5 pounds! What could be wrong with her??? I need help fast because I think my other hens might be starting to act like that too! Help! She is also very energetic so I don't know what that means. She looks like she's eating a little. But not very much.

I'm not sure what to make of it either. Other animals sometimes get worms that eat all their food from the inside of their stomach, but I don't know if chickens can get worms... Check around the vents of your chickens for lice or mites too.

I did that the other day, but I guess I'll check again. The thing is we jut wormed them at the beginning of this year so it would be weird for her to have worms. Thanks.
