The Nitty Gritty on Molt Mender™
TIPS FOR USE
Here's what you need to do: Fling, scatter or sprinkle supplement on the ground to encourage natural foraging, scratching and pecking! Supplements should be no more than 1-2% of their food volume. Or if you follow me on Instagram, then you've [hopefully] seen my Molt Mender recipe on my stories.
It's so easy now: simply mix and mash of all of these ingredients (Molt Mender, a few eggs, and raw meat) together and separate them into meatball-sized portions. Serve one ball/patty for every three chickens occasionally. Have extra on hand: freeze the extra portions and thaw before serving. And your flock will take care of the rest.
Plain, fresh raw meat is best. I know. It does sound sooo gross, but your feathered friends love it! The protein in raw meat helps with the molting and regeneration of feather growth.
Bhutt if that's too icky or if you are vegetarian, you can remove the meat or add Molt Mender to feed instead of making the patties.
But Treats for Chickens PRO TIP: I store mine in the freezer in tinfoil with FOR THE CHICKENS scribbled across the top [in marker pen] to keep my family from thinking these are human cookies.
Is Molt Mender chick age appropriate? Chickens typically go through their first adult molt at approximately 18 months old. Please wait until your chicken’s first molting experience. Then offer Molt Mender to them.

Reviews From Pet Chicken Parents
As always, thank you for sharing! Treats for Chickens’ chicken parents rely on your honest feedback. -Dawn 🧡
My girls love this Molt Mender! They get some every day with their breakfast - we add a little cayenne to it as well - and they are happier than ever. The quality of their eggs is wonderful and every morning we have a lot of contented chicken chatter. Wonderful product - I can't recommend it enough.
I have about 60 hens and 8 roosters, some more than others looking a bit haggard. I like to give my ladies and Roos Molt Mender by the handful and sometimes I'll take Dawn's advice to make the meat patties. No matter what form the Molt Mender is in, they devour it all! I gotta say, with all that organic goodness packed in to that glorious mix, I swear it gives those girls a little pep in their step! I just need it to come in a much bigger bag! Thank you Dawn for ALL your great products!
My chickens made it through their molt with grace thanks to Molt Mender.
I have 12 Red Star hens, 1 older Black Astrolope, 1 older Americana, a Silkie rooster, and 2 old female ducks. They all love Molt Mender and it really helps.
One of our younger hens was molting and stressed. Got our hands on Molt Mender after seeing all the positive reviews. AMAZING! She (and our other girls) LOVED the patties we made with Molt Mender! Within two days, new feather growth and a much calmer, happier hen. This hen also had not laid an egg in almost two months, and her egg production started back up too! Can’t say enough good things about Molt Mender!
