Can you tell me what in the way of extras I should feed my chooks through moult? They are about a year old now, and this is the first time I have kept chickens, so would appreciate any feedback I can get. Thanks

    you wont go far wrong with poultry spice- its designed for the moult and you can give it freely in winter too-just sprinkle over their food.- its 25% calcium too.
    also plenty of protein- eggs, mealworms etc and sunflower seeds-(contain both protein and oil to give the new feathers a sheen.)
    their bodies use up lots of protein to make the feathers.
    hope this helps
