Becky replied to Doris Stipek's discussion new at raising chickens

Becky replied to Joseph McClellan's discussion Chickens stopped laying
"They are probably barred rocks and they are probably moulting.   Give them extra protein and they'll recover faster.  Protein helps them grow their feathers back so they can concentrate on eggs again.  What are you feeding…"

Becky replied to Joseph McClellan's discussion Chickens stopped laying
"How many do you have? How old are they?  What breeds are they?  Are they molting(losing feathers)? Chickens tend to slow down or quit when it's too hot, they are molting or when the days become shorter."

I'm getting 100 lbs of the 17% chick finisher - I figure that will take me through 2 months.  Although I just looked at the gauge on the feeder and they have consumed half a 50 lb bag in the last 2 weeks.
