    So my flock is very skinny and I have upped their food and they ara healthy other than the skinniness! I switched to 20% protein and nothing has happened...can someone give me some advice as to how I can "fatten" them up?

    Do they have free access to their food?

    Well I see you have your avatar as a Polish Chicken. Polish Chickens are skinny chickens normally. Mine are tall and thin compared to my other hens.
