    Wondering about some things,
    What type of lighting.
    What are they eating?
    Has the vet done a fecal test? look for hook worms?
    has a blood panel been done on one?
    has one been tested for a yeast impalance?

    I would have a fecal & full blood panel done on one.
    It will give a clue to what is going on.

    In short term I would get some red palm oil
    -human food grade- & put 1 drop on a chex or other small
    item so you know they eat it 2x a DAY
    Red palm oil has a lot of Vit. A, good for feathers & skin
    See a different vet if you have to
    The more info you can give, the better the info that can be
    given
