Re: Chicken Moma chat thread. Share, Q&A, all things chicken! <3 October <3

Ok, so basically the are like humans and horses, lol. Horses get more protein and carbs in the winter to help produce a little extra heat. Like camping in the winter for people. Carbs and protein will produce more heat. Now for an extream molt, there are patterns for aprons, saddle blankets, and even jumpers. Lighting and all the other extras. Persionally I'd start by giveing them extra fattening food now. Like extra feed, veggies and fruite, ect. leftovers are good too. Boiled potatoes, oatmeal, and rice are a good startch to help them keep warm befor ebedtime.

Just some ideas.
HTH.
