Hi all, One out of 5 of my chickens have started molting, I'm hoping the rest start soon so they can get it over with before it gets much colder. At the same time we also started making our own soy milk, which results in leftover cooked soy mash, which the chickens seem to love. It makes about a cup of mash each time we make soy milk (so like 2-3 times a week) and I'm curious if this is good enough of a protein supplement for encouraging new feather growth. They also get a little bit of BOSS nearly every day as an incentive to go back to their coop when we need them to. (They are only allowed supervised free ranging as we have a lot of dogs in the neighborhood who have discovered that there are tasty chickens in our backyard) Last winter when they were about 9 months old, we provided them with a small bowl of oatmeal with greek yogurt and a little BOSS nearly every day when it was below freezing, which I intend to do this winter too, though I may substitute the oatmeal for the soy mash if there are no reasons why I shouldn't give them this source of protein. The white stuff on top of their treat bucket is the soy mash. They seem to love it. The chicken at 10 o'clock is the one who is molting.
