    Cock wont gain weight???What do I do?????

    I bought a black gowdy jap from a guy in florida when I got it it weighed less than a pound . I cant get him to gain weight either I've tried galamicin tylan wormed him alot B12 kickin chicken aminoplex a new feed with extra grit. I dont know he acts good red head mean and he crows. he should weigh around 4 1/2 5 lb but he weights less than a pound. His breast bone sticks out about 3 inches and I'm to the point where just to ask for another bird and kill him or find a cure all heal or kill remedy. Pleas Help.

    I wonder how much you paid for him... you should get your money's worth.
    Dont waste your time and effort (expenses too). Send him back... unless
    he's only worth a song

    worm him then ten days later worm him again then try leaving him in a smaller coop like a roundpen so he can't get alot of exercise also don't put him on the cord or flying pens because this will encourage him to be active and not gain weight. also change the feed to more grains like scratch grains or cooked brown rice for more carbs.

    I currently have two stags with this problem... eats a lot but seems to be thin. they have been dewormed and given supplements but still they are the same. They are a little weak in sparring as compared to their cousins with full body, I will try one suggestion of placing them in the Coop for a while.
