    Protein will help them with nice shiny new feathers - as it would be a building block of feathers. Not sure about speed... It will be interesting to hear what replies you will get on this one.

    I did not notice a difference either way. I gave BOSS.This is my second year of molting. I just put a light in their coop to see if they will start laying again.Been about 2-3 months since they stopped.
