Do you force moult?
No, Ecoeggs does not allow forced moult of the flocks.
Forced moulting is often achieved by withdrawal of feed for 7-14 days. During the moulting period, the hens stop egg production for a period of at least two weeks. The hens lose their feathers and cease to lay eggs in addition to losing weight. This has the effect of allowing the hen's reproductive tracts to regress and rejuvenate and extends productivity for older flocks. This temporary starving of the hens is seen as inhumane and is the main point of objection by critics and opponents of the practice.
