Just wondering if there is anything specific to feed older hens that don’t lay anymore? They eat layer pellets now and I was just thinking whether there’s any point to it if they’re not laying and should they be eating something else... thanks :)

Pellets are still the best balanced diet for them and a change of diet would probably only upset them.
They are probably also the easiest for them to digest.
