As much as I don't like to hear that they aren't getting good food, it could possibly be the case…LET me explain the menu

This mother hen has free range of the place with grassland and bush cuisine
Additionally, Everyday a serve of mixed grained eaten each day
Chopped wombok or choy sui or bok choy most likely wombok (chinese cabbage)
Mung beans mixed in once a week
Turkey starter mixed with dry cat food
Blueberries when in season especially during her nesting time (evenly distributed)
Mulberries when in as they fall from the bush
Egg & biscuit mix with liquid vitamin C mixed in (given to her on nesting)
Fresh Water available at any time
1 every 3 weeks or when its raining raw minced rolled in turkey starter
mango when in season form our trees sometimes grapes

ANYTHING missing, I welcome additional info..

"Sparrow" the little runt is now doing allot better and growing up, he has had growth spurt and growing quite fast now!
Still a little smaller, but growing up he does receive special treatment from me and comes running for the food! dd66789

HI there ALL!

UPDATE FOR SPARROW-

I believe sparrow is doing really well and healthy he still roosts with his mummy- where as his sibling has decided that she grown enough to go with others…. Sparrow is a lot bigger now but still smaller than the rest- he was just a late bloomer! I will post some pictures as soon as I take some more!
