My second question for today....I started with chickens right about a year ago. From what I have read, they seemed to have molted later than most people's--seems like it wasn't until around January, which was the coldest part of the year...??? Anyway, this is the first of April and many of them still have bare backsides. Shouldn't they have feathered back in by now. Could this be because they are not getting enough protein? I feed higher-end layer crumbles that is "vegetarian"--no animal by-product. The tag lists 16% protein, is this enough during molting? If not, what is the best thing to give them to boost their protein? They get tons of extras: oatmeal with yogurt and flax, olive oil, fresh greens and lots of low-salt, low-sugar food scraps. Thanks!!
