In the Brooder
- May 23, 2020
Hello! I am a new chicken mom... and one of my one month olds seems very thin. it's growing very slowly (it's a barnyard mix so who knows, could be a bantam?) It's almost half the size of my other one and I can feel its chest bones and everything. I feed them regular medicated chick feed. they get as much as they want and sometimes I give a few meal worms. it's also JUST now getting some feathers. it was quite naked for a while. But beyond looking smaller because of that, he just feels so thin and light. Here it is on the left, and the other for comparison... It's hard to tell because it's stretched out here with the size difference... but you can see how thin it is. What can I do to help him gain weight??? It's behavior seems pretty normal. activity level and health seem normal.
