Please bear with me, I have read through a bunch of the information regarding what to feed your hens while moulting, but I would like some advice still please. Our girls seemed to be doing fine, eating normally, until we changed their feed to pellets. They seem to be eating a lot less now, but I'm not sure if they are just wasting less or really eating less. It is cold here so they aren't out of their coop daily, but when it is nice enough, we open it up and have spread some shavings on the ground so they are comfortable (there is a lot of snow here), and they come out and enjoy it. With the cold weather, shouldn't they be eating more food? Might they just not like their food in pellet form? Picky chickens? They eat the table scraps we give them fine. Mostly spinach, lettuce, some berries, apples, carrots, etc. Also, the pellets we are feeing have 17% protein and we do give them some scratch. I read that we need to up their protein though, so we will buy them some live meal worms and some of the BOSS. Suggestions for anything else? - We would prefer to feed them live insects and grains.
