Cat food for the chickens

Posted on December 28, 2012 at 7:22 PM
After moulting our hens haven't restarted laying and it's been quite a while now.  The production of feathers after the moult puts extra demands on their bodies, they cease laying as feather production is more of a necessity than egg production.  Normally, this spontaneously restarts but ours hasn't.  I really don't want to buy supermarket eggs as even the free range eggs look weirdly uniform.  So I need to stimulate their laying.  I don't want to go down the artificial lighting route as that seems a little too intense for our girls. After a little research it seems that a little extra protein in the form of cat food (very high in protein) might be enough to give them a boost.
Cat food for the chooks starts tomorrow......
