"Just moulting. If your concenred about the chicks being cold just be sure that their coop is insulated against WIND and breeze. It is generally not advised to add a heat source, instead add walls or plastic, insulation, etc. If you protect them…"

"Thanks that is very reassuring.  I remember her losing feathers before and stopping eggs for a while in past years, but sine I changed feed so recently thought it might be related.  Also, I have a livestock heater (like a heating pad to…"

"They're moulting. Totally natural. Gives the hens a break from laying as they regrow their new feathers. Google for more info. You can give them sunflower seeds or other high protein snacks if you want, but changing feed won't stop the…"

Losing feathers

We have three chickens: Puffy, a leghorn, Ornitha, Rhode Island Red and Rocky Road, a Bantam Rhode Island Red. The have free range of the whole back yard, and eat lay crumble (16%) as well as kitchen scraps.  Puffy is definitely the dominant and oldest chicken, may be 4 years old. The three of them had been laying one or two eggs per day, and we have recently only seen one egg a week. I assume this is because of the change in the weather. What I am most concerned about is Puffy's is losing her…See More

"Periodically, Once a year or so the Albuquerque BioPark has a Bug Eating event.  Here is my son sampling a grasshopper.  When the guts squired out of it, he got grossed out and stopped eating it.  He liked the deep friend meal worms…"

Victor Gomez replied to Lisa Johnson's discussion Cannibal Chickens? in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"If the crusher fines are complete with some larger granules that would be fine, but if it is only the very fine it may not do. If it ranges like up to 1/16" that would be ok too. I also forgot in summer if you can you can cut timothy clover…"

"Thanks, that is a good suggestion, too.  My yard is not lush by any means, That is why I backed out of the coop tour last year when I saw that it said "and garden".  We have crusher fines in teh fron yard, would that work?"

"Dietary needs can cause unpredictable behaviors amongst animals. You may be doing this already but I would suggest you try feeding them chickens some oyster shells found at most feed stores. Another thing that causes havoc is if chickens are fed…"

"Sorry if my reply came off rude, I wasn't trying to be!  Was just informing you as I've had chickens a while.  :)   For the compost shells, make sure they a re really broken up so they don't associate their own eggs…"

Lisa Johnson replied to Lisa Johnson's discussion Cannibal Chickens? in the group ABQ Chicken Keepers
"I have had the white one since she was a chick, and never "fed" her eggs, but there was shell in the compost.  The other two were pullets, when I obtained them last year at the 4-H sale, so I think it was accidental.  I…"

"Chickens take dust baths.  It might be a few days or longer before she is able to clean that mess off though.  But I don't think it will harm her.  Eating raw eggs though, I think will harm them.  At some point they were fed…"
