    The one hen that aready went through a moult that I got from you. I've seen the hens pick at her and she would bleed. I was actually just thinking of one of the aprons and thinking that may help, so I'm fixing to find one to buy one. Thank you! What can I give them for extra protiene instead of changing their feed?

    TherryChicken - bugs (mealworms are easy), meat (liver, chicken and turkey carcasses, or even ground beef), eggs (scrambled or hard boiled is how I usually serve them but I know others offer them raw) - some folks have used canned cat food and tuna, basically anything you have or can get fairly easily and inexpensively will suffice. If you are or know a hunter, ask for organs if they get game.

    Kind of, yeah - when starting a new food I put down a spoonful or two in a plastic dish and see if they eat it - if they gobble I give them more. If they don't touch it in 10-15 minutes I toss on the ground and walk away, which sometimes lets it dry up and go away and sometimes on the ground it turns delicious. Never know.

    Most of them start at about 24 weeks. I heard that one person had a start at 20weeks, and somebody just announced 32 weeks. One influencing factor is when they were hatched. Chicks that hatch late and come to POL when daylight hours are very short are the ones that take longer.
