    Our girls go half naked during molt. I've heard of using game feed. The problem is that the molt seems to last 9-12 weeks and some of the varieties molt at different times. Will the high protein content hurt the hens that are done molting?

    I don't think so, but I would mix the game feed 50/50 with the regular.
