Why is my chicken losing 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. Lastly check that you have enough feeders and drinkers present to prevent your chickens fighting over food and water.

To help stimulate appetite you can add Nettex Egg and Shell Support Powder to their feed, as the Aniseed within the mineral based product will help to stimulate appetite. Add Nettex Herbal Gut Conditioner or Nettex Poultry Apple Cider Vinegar to their drinking water to help support healthy digestive function.
