    Is there anything we should be doing now that the hens are molting? Increase proteins or something?

    Make sure the birds are well fed during this period as it takes a lot of energy to grow new feathers.

    Nothing that I'm aware of. I do not change feed or do anything special when my flock molts.

    I have seen some pretty decent recipes I am going to try while they are molting. I will keep you all posted.
