I was just wondering, does anyone else use quinoa? During a molt I read that they need extra protein, quinoa is a grain that has the highest amount of protein and I happened to have some in my cupboard since we eat it. I make my hens a little scramble a couple times a week with an egg, small amount of the egg shell crumbled and a tablespoon or so of quinoa. They love it and it keeps them laying even during warm weather (I am in Florida) and also during molts. If I happen to have any green pepper or tomato I chop that up too and mix in after cooking.
