Hi All :)
A classic mistake made by many poultry keepers is to cut out the high protien feed during the moult. I often get "they are off the lay so it's not worth feeding high protien". Growing new feathers takes a lot protien, so keep your chooks well fed during the moult and they will reward you by comming back into lay sooner rather than later.
Regards
