    Need suggestions I have a chicken that has stopped eating... she is bone thin!! her feathers weigh more than her!! she was a very large healthy hen about 2 1/2years old, but I noticed the other girls not letting her in the group when it was snack time picked up and realized how light she had gotten. I have been giving her pedilite and gator aide trying to give her food but most of the time she just only eats a tiny bit and then show no interest. She did lay really big eggs but sometimes the egg shells looked odd and deformed. I had another hen how never laid a egg and she died a few weeks back being EXTRA thin. The other 6 hens are good weight and eating well.
