    If your chicken is losing weight then it could be due to worms. Have you wormed the flock recently or noticed anything in the poops? If it is not worms then a change of feed could also affect them. I changed feed brands once and one of my girls started losing a lot of weight. She went to the bowl and started to eat, but stopped after a few seconds. She just hated the shinier smoother pellets! I changed back to the other brand and she started eating normally again!
    Have you has any other changes in your feed / coop / flock recently?
