My chickens are molting...no eggs (or very few). I've got to get their protein up. I was gonna go sometime this week & get them some BOSS & some higher protein layer pellets (22% I believe it is). I got them a Purina Flock Block & they tore that thing up big time! Devoured it in just a few days & wasn't eating near as much of their food. Then, they started molting. I found them a couple crickets this afternoon & threw them over the fence. What are some more things I can do to up their protein & how does more protein help with the molting process? Oh, & sort of off topic...but have any of you noticed those flock blocks having a certain smell....I can't describe it but I kept thinking what is that smell? Then I figured out it was the flock block. It had rained a couple days after I put it out (which might have been what helped them to devour it so easily)...idk it was the first flock block I ever tried. Maybe they're supposed to smell like that.
