    While my 4 chickens were molting I changed their feed to 30% game and showbird feed. Now that they are laying again should I change back to the 16% regular egg maker feed or stay with the 30% game and showbird feed. I have 2 Old English and 2 RIR's.

    Thanks

    I would gradually switch back to the 'egg maker' feed if they were mine. I would do so by adding ever increasing portions to the game and showbird feed.

    I would keep them on the Game and ShowBird Feed and keep oyster shell out free choice .

    With 4 birds it's not really significant, but the 'egg maker' is a lot less expensive and will get the job done very well.
