A white leghorn should get about 5-51/2 lbs. Are you feeding a feed mix? If so what protein amount? Also does he live with younger birds and hens? Helps to know for recommendations. In general a 16-18% protein grower feed should be ok. If mixed ages of young and old then a flockraiser feed would work for growth. If mixed with laying hens a grower or layer feed of 16-18% should be ok. Poultry Grit should be offered free choice as well.

@kriz the farmer can you post some photos please?
I know you have struggled in the past, let's see if we can get someone from India to help you with his diet and vitamin intake. @Saaniya do you have any suggestions for Kriz?

In the mean time, I would increase his protein - fish, meat, eggs and get some vitamins into him a couple of times a week.

I understand that in some countries there is not “feed” available to purchase.
It is possible that you might need to de-worm him. Is that available to you?
I also understand that animal protein such as meat is at a premium. Feeding egg is a good source.
Make sure he’s not having some type of digestive problem. Does he have crop issues?

There's only vitamins can help also Pearl Millet (High Quality) dirt free

If pearl millet combined with vitamins 1 drop daily weight score very good but 1.7.KG for 7 month old roo is perfect otherwise his leg affect due to weight leghorn is not so.heavy in.india
