    When I get home from school, I feed and water my chickens. And Im reconizing that 2 of my hens ( there at the bottom of the pecking order) dont eat much, and I wanted to know is there any any simple ways to tell if there under weight? beside weighing them...

    They say if you can feel the breast bone and it's prominent then they're under weight. Maybe try to feed them seperately for awhile [​IMG]
