    I 'think' I read that before somewhere, but I'm not sure. If I feed the hens a higher protein food while molting, will they lay eggs again? I have some friends who say theirs never stop laying eggs year round. I wonder why their chickens lay and mine don't. DO you think adding some added protein will help the cause? I am sick of buying eggs at the store.
