    My dear Henry (the white leghorn in the avatar) who is usually always hungry did not eat his treats yesterday afternoon or this morning. He is molting. Could this have something to do with it? He is not listless and is drinking. Should I be concerned and if so what should I do?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm new to all this after being away from chickens for many many years. What kind of supplement?

    The one I really like is AviaCharge 2000 as it is a complete nutritional/vitamin supplement (you can order online from McMurry or Strombergs) however your feed store will usually have one if you find this difficult ...such as Rooster Booster or such (you will see that the electrolyte solutions also contain vitamins however electrolytes should only be given in times of extreme stress or when you suspect the bird is dehydrated or is panting)...
