She will be back to better looking than ever in several weeks.
Cutting the calcium is a good thing to do when they are not laying eggs. There is extra calcium in layer which is bad for them when they are not using it to make eggs.
A rule of thumb is to not give them more than about 10%of their feed as treats--Even BOSS and etc. There is no real hard set number though. Just give them a bit once a day. If you do not have a lot of chickens, then your kitchen waste would be too much for them.
You are doing a good job!
I have 6 big girls and 4 new layers and one not laying yet. I have both grower and layer with some flax in them. How should I go about feeding the rest of the flock? The younger ones just started laying I n the last 3 weeks. Should I put both layer and grower in coop or pull layer. Honestly with day light and most are not laying anyways. Should I just give grower?
