    Extra protein and higher perches will keep his tail nice. If the feathers are broken pluck them.

    Mealworms, scrambled egg, cooked beans, cooked soya, meat scraps, tinned tuna and the water drained from the tuna tin... Apple Cider Vinegar (preferably an organic one with the "mother") in their drink water improves the appearance of chickens' feathers too. Add 4-5 tablespoons to a gallon water.

    I would give him high quality cat food for extra protein.

    The apple Cider Is Doing Wonders on His Feathers Cause Since I put that on his water his feathers are looking way more healthier his silver coloring is coming back on him he's loosing his sun bleached colors

    I'm glad to hear that [​IMG] Sorry I didn't answer your Q about the brand, which I'm not familiar with! I bought some ACV at the supermarket. We couldn't get the organic one where we lived, but it made a difference with my flock. Healthy chicks, no poopy butts, more eggs... ACV is great stuff. I'd love to try the organic one if I can get some.
    I forgot to say it's recommended that you give them ACV water for a week, then plain water for 3-4 weeks, then ACV water again and so on.
