    A chicken that is loosing weight is not a healthy chicken. Did the vet say what he was treating her for? What antibiotic did he prescribe?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Have you wormed your birds recently? Liquidy poop with a lot of urates can mean an overloaded gut of worms. If you haven't done so recently, I would suggest some Safeguard Liquid Goat wormer. Depending on the size of your birds, 1/2 ml for standard large breeds, 1/4 ml for bantams. This is given orally down the throat via syringe, no needle. Give this once a day for 3 days. Repeat in 10 days. You can get this wormer at TSC in the horse section. I would suggest worming your birds once, twice or either three times a year.

    Good luck and I hope you can get them back to good health soon!
