My girls are molting for the 1st time. They seem not to be eating much. Should I be concerned? Should I be giving them something special to eat? Thanks for any suggestions you can give. This is my 1st experience with molting.

Are they free ranging? My birds eat wayyyy less layer feed in the warmer months than over the winter. If you're ranging them, they are probably finding plenty of food on their own. Extra protein works. I give mine black oil sunflower seeds as a high protein snack. It's really good for them, in more ways than one.
