Could be. I threw many pounds of forage seed last year. Plus, like you mentioned before, I was quick to give eggs. Did not realize how fatty they were. Here’s the current feed:I'm not convinced it's the feed.
I'm wondering if the heavy treats from before did the damage (fat) and if it's just stuck around.
Also, Bridge doesn’t lay anymore and now Ruby is on hormones. I would like to stick with an all flock if I can find one I like.Whew, I feel like 22% protein is a lot. Is there a reason you aren’t feeding layer feed still (16% protein)?
The all flock feed has much less calcium than layer.
I would be very careful rationing feed. I’ve had several people tell me you create a competition problem with that and the lower ranked hens lose out.
ETA: I can see now in post #32 you mentioned you don’t have them on layer since it’s winter.
That’s so sweet; thank you! Ruby was active tonight after work. Huge and a bit slow, but active and seemed happy.I just wanted to offer some support. I am rooting for your beautiful girl. Both of you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you both the very best
