I have five laying hens. I wrote a post awhile ago saying I thought they looked to be losing weight a little after they started laying. Someone mentioned using a higher protein feed. Like turkey feed? Or is that too high. I thought about worming them to be safe but am not sure if they have worms. Their poo is normal, no mites or skin rashes of any sort. Would it be ok to worm if I am not sure they have worms? They have never been wormed. They don't act sick at all, free range part of the day, are fed layer mash. My hubby says they look fine but they seem somewhat skinnier to me. Would it hurt to give them a higher protein for awhile? So my two questions are, what high protein feed and for how long, and should I worm to be safe. They have access to feed all day, never go without. Hope someone can give me some advice. Thanks.
