I bought a pair of chickens from a guy locally about 2 weeks ago. As soon as they arrived, I quarantined them, gave them a dose of Eprinex, then 10 days later, a dose of Wazine. They'll probably get the Wazine again in another 10 days. Thing is, they're not really eating, I feed the same stuff the guy I bought them from did, and I think they're losing weight. They're active birds though, and will happily peck at the grass in their run - though they've been inside for a few days due to the rain. I've started cooking them oatmeal, and adding scrambled eggs, veggies, tuna.. you know. Protein and all that. When I give them this, they gobble it up happily, whereas they barely pick at the layer feed. They're coming up to five months old. What could be the problem? Do they not like the food? Are they sick? (they don't seem to be!) I don't think they're wormy... I'm getting desperate. Am I being conned by a pair of very smart chooks who have figured that if they go on hunger strike I'll cook them oatmeal and eggs???
