How to Add Weight to a Laying Hen
One of my hens is noticeably skinny. (I have 4 total hens). She has been checked by the vet and has no health issues. I use commercial feed (Modesto Milling Organic Layer, Non-Corn-Soy). They get a little scratch (about 3/4 cup for them all daily). And some alfalfa hay. What recommendations do you have to supplement the skinny hen's diet that will add some weight?

Assuming the chicken is not sick with some underlying intestinal problem, you could try adding mealworms to her diet for extra protein. Just don’t over do it.
