Temperatures are dropping quite low here in Alabama. Next week it will be around 15F at night and I have one hen that has started to molt. I have around 4" of straw in the coop and have covered the vents just under the eaves with canvas to keep out draughts. The gable vents are still open. Should I be feeding them a higher protein feed during the winter? I gave them warm water in their waterer early this morning and made a warm mash of layer feed mixed with oatmeal. They picked out the oatmeal and left the rest. I am sure they will eat in later in the day, they normally do.
