Treats for Chickens supplement + treat blend, Molt Mender™ – an Online Eggsclusive.
Here’s what you need to know: molting is a time of stress and a big stressful drain on chickens’ bodies. In human terms, molting is like a really bad hair day with a full moon that just won’t end. To chickens, molting means losing feathers, getting picked on, feeling stark naked and looking hideous all-the-while regrowing new and beautiful feathers. It's designed to help get your chickens through their molt and other times of stress. How rad is that?
Very rad. Molting Mender assists in restoring nutrients, vitamins, healthy oils fats, and proteins- to get your flock feeling their best during this awkward time.
At Treats for Chickens, we created this needed healthy mixed organic ingredients supplement + treat to be an eggceptional part of your feathered pet’s wellness.

Tips For Use
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.
Here's what you need to do: 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.
