I have an old Blue Orp hen, Big Heifer (BH), who is molting. She’s molting pretty heavily and has been for a while (at least 2 months). I’m pretty sure she’s molting, and I’ve checked for mites, parasites, etc.

Would it be helpful to purchase some “Feather Fixer” for her? She’s pretty old and getting thin, I suspect she needs a higher protein feed.


Her diet-
She free ranges for a *minimum* 3 hours, about 4 days a week.

Layer feed

A bit of scratch feed (every now and then, I know it’s used for treats).

And if the Feather Fixer won’t be helpful, anything else that will? :)

*i’ll get some pictures soon*

I use Game Bird breeder feed, 20% protein. My birds are molting too. Some are going through heavy molts and some light molts. My egg production has dropped off significantly but I'm still getting some eggs mostly from my Leghorns and Rhode Island Whites.
