    My barred rock is ALWAYS hungry and waits at the back door for food. She's VERY thin. We just had Lymphoid Leukosis affect 7 others and were put down. I don't think she has that, ....any ideas before we have to put her down too??

    If she is the least dominant the others may be keeping her away from the feed.
