    I am definately going to up the amount of protein but do I need to up anything else to keep them healthy for winter?

    Unless they are molting what would be the purpose of giving them more protein in the winter?

    If the weather is really cold and they are having to burn calories to stay warm you might throw them some scratch grains in the morning to get them moving and exercising. Other than that their regular balanced ration should be all they need.
