    Get his weight back from what? What happened to him? To really answer your question, I think we'd need more information.

    He doesn't need medicated feed if he's an adult-the amprolium is a thiamine blocker to help build immunity to coccidiosis in chicks. Any good quality feed would be fine, but if he needs plumping up, you could supplement with scrambled eggs and canned salmon a few times each week, or something along those lines.
