We continue the mini-series with poultry nutritionist Jeff Mattocks of The Fertrell Company. This will be part 2 of our 3 part technical road series that we recorded on our way to Arkansas. That explains the road hum that I couldn't get out, but everything is clear. In this episode, we talk about molting;
  • The natural purpose of molting.
  • How pastured poultry producers use molting to achieve a productive second and third lay cycle.
  • The right time and the humane way to molt a hen.
  • Why force a molt instead of doing it naturally.
  • Bringing the hens out of molt with proper lighting techniques.
  • Reasons for unexpected molt.
