I forgot what I was going to ask, in my defense hubs was going on about sandwich meat and I zoned out.
Anyways, do ya'll have any birds molting?
Lulu and Renee are nearly full tilt naked with big feather sheaths starting to pop out
Hot as it is nude is great but they're so early.
I was contemplating sweaters and putting granny panties on Lulu's shivering caboose last.year.

No molters here just yet. Poor Crooky goes naked all summer and looks like a pin cushion then feathers in nicely in the fall.
For her I think it's hat crooked body/beak is an indication of a genetic issue.

What % protein feed do you use? Since I started feeding 18% protein or higher I’ve not had any of my chickens have a hard molt.

It is 16%, kalmbach takes a mighty big price jump once it hits over that.
Im tempted to mix in some of the starter grower bought for the kids it is 23%.
Iv'e got 25lbs of it, nobody would starve.

Yes!

So many I'd like to have. The next standard breed I would like to have are either lavender orpingtons, blue laced red wyandottes, or silver death layers.
I got Deathlayers from Greenfire Farms at auction and lost every single one. They had awful customer service too. Deathlayers don't mature to breeding till at least 2.

Oh! Duh! I never think of the simplest answer. Lol! Thanks :)
I would do a thick ziplock bag and a rolling pin. Thats how I crush egg shells.

I have some molters too. At first it was broodies raising kids so I thought hormones but now others have joined the "no tail feathers club"


I saw the comic @Redhead Rae shared but a little different...
