How can I help my chicken gain weight?
If your chicken is looking a little thin, first rule out any possible causes of weight loss. Check that their digestive systems are working fine, by checking their faeces for changes in consistency. Take a faecal egg count sample and send it off to be tested to ensure that there are no worms within the flock.
When it comes to diet The Chicken Whisperer recommends keeping them on a regular diet of 96% layers pellets with healthy seeds and a few dark greens at the end of the day.
In addition to a good diet, regularly add Nettex Herbal Gut Conditioner or Nettex Poultry Apple Cider Vinegar to their drinking water to help support a healthy digestive system.
