In the Brooder
- Jul 5, 2007
This is a continuation from my battle with impacted crop. My hen has lost a lot of weight and doesn't want to eat much. Compared to my other hens she is just skin and bones. I don't think she'll pull through this illness unless she starts gaining some weight fast. The problem is that she doesn't care for treats that much. She is eating a little crumbles and pellets, but she doesn't like them softened. I've tried to give her yogurt, eggs, bread, and oatmeal, but she doesn't touch any of it. She does like meal worm, but I can only procure so many of those. I'd appreciate any advice on how to put some weight on her or some other treats I can try. Thanks!
