Hi there. I have a mixed flock of 8 hens. They are just shy of 10 months old and have been laying for 4 to 5 months. Our winter temperatures were pretty mild this year minus 5 to 10 C. I supplimented their light as well. The teperatures are warming up and days are longer now that it is spring yet my egg production is dropping. there are a few feathers in the coop but not many. Can chickens molt in spring? Would higher protein help (they are fed natures harvest layer pellets plus fruits and veggies). The insects have only just started buzzing around the yard this week so the hens have not had them to eat all winter. Thanks for any suggestions. I am new to raising chickens.
