Getting them back laying

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by chickenman111, Jul 24, 2014.

  1. What can I do to get my chickens to start back laying eggs? Should I give them extra protein, calcium, vegetables? Please any help will be appreciated.

    I'm assuming they just went through a molt? You aren't dealing with sickness, worms, etc? I would focus more on higher protein if molting is the issue.

    I feed all mine a starter/grower at 20% constantly since I have a mixed age/sex flock and molts don't seem to be a HUGE problem.

    And as always....have that oyster shell constantly available :)
  3. They went through a molt last year, but right now their recovering from mites as far as I can tell. But I'm willing to try the high protein, and higher calcium. Thanks for your help. : )
