Oh, no; that;s awful. My girl in question is my runt to! Sorry about yours.
They aren't laying eggs yet are they?
'Runts' who are often underdeveloped in some way,
often have internal issues that can't be seen.
All you can do is give the best basic care and nutrition possible and hope for the best.
No. But the bag of layer food I bought doesn't say 'wait and feed when they start laying.' It says feed a month prior to laying age, which is I guess 18 weeks. Mine are almost five months old. I bought them April 22nd.
Oh I see now.
I hope she starts improving and all goes well for you
Well, the info on the bags is for selling more feed and often is not the best husbandry practice.
It won't kill them (or make them sick) to follow those instructions,
but it can reduce their nutrition before they are fully mature thus slowing it a tad.
Thank-you. I weighted her, 2lb 15oz. I gave her just an itty bitty drop of the Nutri-Drench, I will do so again tonight.
