We have two backyard hens (a buff laced polish and a bantam brown leghorn) they are about 5 months old and have not started laying yet. We let them free range in our yard all day long and feed them only kitchen scraps like soaked bread and watermelon. My question is : we have a big supply of hard boiled egg yolks (the yellow center only) because my inlaws only eat the whites, my chickens LOVE this! How many can I feed them each per day? Could too much protein stifle their egg laying capacity?? So far I have been limiting it to one yolk per bird per day, but have many more to go around..... Does anyone know??? Thanks so much!
