Hello all, I recently increased the protein in my hens diet to try to stop them from feather pecking ( I had read that it might be a protein problem). I went from layer feed(16% protein) to game bird feed (22% protein) and mixed the two together for approximately a 19 to 20% protein content. Only one of my hens was laying eggs as the other 4 are still too young I think. The feather picking seems to have slowed, but my only layer has stopped producing. My 4 younger girls are now around 22 weeks old and should begin laying soon I hope, but it's getting closer to winter and the days are shorter so that may play a part. I just put lights in the coop and have started turning them on, but still no eggs. Has anyone else tried higher protein feed and noticed a problem with egg production?
