    Hi, I'm guessing thats a typo and you mean moulting. You have lots of options in terms of increasing protein - including maize, mealworms, beans / lentils (cooked) among many others. Personally, i give my chickens a handful of millet every day and you could give a little more if you wish or, if you are currently giving them layers food, then switch to growers.
