So Artie by American is feeling like just feathers and bones, nothing else . My other americana is not this way. Artie has pretty much been like this since we got her, but now her pep is gone also. What I have done She is currently in hospital cage with extra food and water. I have put Wazine wormer in her water to worm her. I have dusted her with DE for bugs about a month ago, should I do it again? I feel her crop and it has food in it, but it doesn't seem to get as big as the other chickens do (they get it soo big sometimes I wonder how they can walk with all that weight up front.) Anyways, any ideas on what else to do or check out?
