Get The Best For Your Flock

Treats for Chickens supplement, 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 blended organic ingredients supplement to be an eggceptional part of your feathered pet’s wellness.

When you click below you'll see we've listed key information for fellow pet chicken parents like yourself so you can learn about our products and the benefits for your flock.

The Nitty Gritty on Molt Mender™

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.

Special Surprise

My chickens are four years old and picky eaters unless it’s earth worms. They were incredibly interested in Molt Mender and ate it.

Happy, Happy ladies....

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.


It's glorious for my girls!

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!

Help my Birds

My chickens made it through their molt with grace thanks to Molt Mender.

Chickens Love It

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.
