Happy New Years to all and IHappy New Years to all and I just joined today. As other members have posted my 6 hens only produce 1 or 2 eggs a day. 4 are cochin (with one cochin rooster); 2 are silkies, and a Rhode Island red. They went through molting about 2 months ago and I live in central PA; getting colder of course but have good size pen and protection from cold. I feed them mash, corn, and provide grit; always plenty of water. Should I try a different food? I give them some scraps but not a lot. I keep straw in their nests and they like some around the ground area. Any suggestions are most appreciated. They are nice pets but I'm still buying eggs!
