I picked up two Polish yesterday and the woman I got them from said, "They have trouble keeping weight on them." And to feed them some game bird feed. I want to know of this is true of Polish. I am very suspicious of it and I immediatley suspected worms. Truth be told, she didn't seem like someone who knew that chickens could even be wormed. Not my first choice of a person to get birds from, but they are just pets and I got a good deal on them. The birds do feel a bit thin, but otherwise look alright. I am going to womr them while they are in quarantine anyway.

I've never heard this about polish, but I am far from a polish expert. :confused:


Worming them seems like a good idea.
