well I don't have this breed and it MIGHT be a disease if I were you I'd separate it from the rest of the flock (If it's easy) intil you know whats wrong.
Has the loss of weight been fairly quick?

Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. If the only sign is weight loss, I would first worm and then put some vitamins and electrolytes in their water for an added boost. What are you feeding? You may even up the protein level for awhile. :thumbsup
