they come out to hunt at night... im awake at night so i see him pretty often. they very rarely move tho you have to actually dig them up and move em or they just sit in their filth

My fat faggot is the same way. I guess some of them are just pickier than others. I've found that feeding less often helps promote a stronger feeding response. As an adult, my dude only gets fed like 2-3 times a month, which seems to work for both of us.

Funny thing is, he wasn't very picky as a baby, but as he got older, his food preferences and appetite changed. He now refuses to eat crickets, earthworms, and mealworms, and will only eat superworms and dubias, and an occasional f/t mouse about every 6-8 weeks. Although if I only fed him mice, he'd probably eat one every day... he loves his mice.

Going on ~4 years old now

jesus christ if mine is picky now i wonder how bad he'll be when hes an adult... he wont even touch the expensive ones ive gotten him. what douchebags pacmans are.. ive been feeding him every other day but since hes getting bigger i might space it out a bit more.
>>
>>2998092
try feeder fish like frozen smelt or live guppies/mollies. try baby mice. try earthworms and locusts, possibly freshly molted ones.
>>
>>2998144
ive tried earth worms and he HATES them... the rest i think hes too little for. hes v small still and i dont want to over feed.

This one hits us hard, my dog was hit by a bus a week ago. He lived, but lost a leg. A year ago he had both his hind legs operated on because of severe hip problems. Poor thing isn't even two yet. I wish the universe would stop conspiring to kill my dog.

Post and discuss chickens, other poultry welcome too.

I'm unsure if my chickens are underweight or not. I'm trying to get them back on all flock crumble supplemented with oyster shell after having been spoiled with too many table scraps and scratch. I was told to only give them crumble to eat, and that they would eat when they're hungry. They eat some here and there, but don't go crazy for it and don't eat as high a volume of it like they do with scratch/treats. At the end of the day, their crop is barely a small lump. I can definitely feel the crumble and grit inside, but I'm just concerned they aren't eating enough. It's probably worth adding that I last wormed them with fenbendazole in early Februrary, and that while they're a good amount of muscle on either side their breast bones are somewhat prominent. They're lively and happy though, and their combs are a good color. How do I coax them into eating crumble again? I don't want to give any treats until they do as that would defeat the purpose, but I get really worried when they eat little.

Where should I go from here? It's been hard to find a clear cut answer as to what point a chicken becomes underweight. I've heard everything from the breast bone being a little prominent is fine as long as there's muscle on either side, to you shouldn't even be able to feel it easily. Any input from someone with more experience than me would be greatly appreciated. I am determined to not fuck this up like before.

Do chickens sometimes empty their crops multiple times in one day? I gave one of my hens some egg and berries from my hand and I've seen her scratching around in the dirt with the others so I know she ate, but as of a couple minutes ago her crop feels completely flat. Weird.
