    I have a rooster that i noticed gets picked on when he tries to eat, and he has lost quite a bit of weight. I want to feed something in addition to the layer feed but i cant spend a lot. I fed them boiled eggs today which they loved. I cant seperate him to another pen till spring, so for now i just need extra fattening treats, an extra food bowl and waterer and me in there watching during feeding so i can get after the other roos if they try anything. So what would be good to feed?
    Thanks

    Not cheap but BOSS is boss. Canned tuna is good too.
    Check him over for lice/mites or possibly worms.
