I am worried about the weights of my chickens, guineas, ducks and geese. The chickens and guineas seem very thin to me. When I pick them up, I can clearly feel their breast bones but we are going through a 50# bag of layer feed every 2 - 2 1/2 days for 110 birds. I read that you can use lard to help fatten them up but it didn't say how to use/prepare the lard for them to eat it. It just said to mix it with their food. Do you melt it and then mix it with their food? Or do you just scoop it out and do your best to mix it with their food? Is there anything else I should add to it? I did see A worm toward the end of summer and got them a pumpkin and put DE in their food. I have not seen any worms since then and I know that they could still have worms, probably do. I will get another pumpkin or two when I go to the store next time. Other than worms, I don't know why they would be so thin or why they should be so hungry. I go out morning and night and feed them. Sometimes I go out to be with them in the afternoon and feed them more. Every time I go out there, they act like I haven't fed them in 2 days. What else can I do for them? Thanks.
