    My hens had got to where they had slowed way down on their egg production.I read that their food needed to be modified,so I bought a bag of layer pellets and a bag of crumbles and mixed them to geather.I also spread cracked corn and some sunflower seeds in the run for snacks.I cut back on the corn(due to corn creates heat in their bodies in and they don't need heat).I seen a difference in their production.Let me know what you think and any ideas please.Always wanting to learn.

    You might get a lot more feedback if you post this in "Feeding and Watering." How old are your girls?

    No biggie. I just can't answer for sure and thought you'd get more attention over there. I've not been on here too long either. Hope you find some answer!
