    I live on Marylands eastern shore winters are moderate but snow and freezing temps are to be expected. All year I have fed my small flock a mixture two parts layer crumb,one part scratch with good results. egg production is still high. if and when should I change their feed for winter and to what

    I mix my own feed and the only change I'm going to make for the winter is to add alfalfa meal since they won't be able to forage until spring (because of snow). Oh, and I'm going to sprout oats and try my hand at a worm bin for extra protein.
