Why feed Cayenne Pepper as a feed suppliment? If you want your hens to lay like it is spring time in winter mix 1/2 tsp ground Cayenne Pepper per cup of feed. Top dress the Cayenne Pepper after you feed so the hens will eat the Cayenne Pepper as they eat their feed. Chickens do not have the heat receptors that humans do, so the peppers do not burn them.

Cayenne Pepper has been used for decades (perhaps longer) as a health supplement. It improves blood circulation. Cayenne Pepper is high in vitamins C and A. It helps to protect the intestines from damage due to bacteria and protozoa and has some bactericidal and protozoan suppression qualities. It acts as a tonic. It's also a natural dewormer. The active ingredient is capsaicin. According to herbal remedies, when taken internally capsaicin can warm the body, raise metabolism, improve weak digestion and increase circulation. All of these  improved body functions aide in laying.


There is a discussion thread for this at want a tip that will make your hens lay like its spring in the winter
