Moulting season

Autumn is moulting season for chickens.

And there are no eggs to be seen.

This morning I’m feeding my chickens a little pick-me-up in the form of a hot mash with some poultry spice.

This is just their normal feed (lauke extra egg or showbird breeder) with a couple of table spoons of poultry spice (from a friend, I can ask her where she gets it if anyone is interested), and a kettle of boiling water.
