    I had some left over buttermilk after making rasberry muffins so I mixed it in with some of their layer crumbles and they loved it!

    I would like to give them this warm every morning. Would this be too often?

    I have one and maybe two hens molting right now and was thinking this may also help them.

    Buttermilk is mostly water so unless you're trying to get them to consume quarts of it a day it's OK to mix it into their feed.
