Yes, I'll definitely raise the protein levels. And get a few more feeders. :)

The yard is 20-by-16 ft. for 30 birds.

Thanks!!!!  :)

Live on a 50-cow dairy farm. Have a 30-count flock; includes Buff Orpingtons, Turkens, Leghorns, Rhode Island mixes, and a Black Australorp. Enjoy hunting, drawing, writing, playing the guitar, and nature activities. Believe in God and His Son Jesus Christ. And I love BYC!

Your run meets the bare minimum in terms of space. You've got just about 10.6 sq ft per bird. Most dual-purpose breeds, and very active birds need about 12 sq ft per bird. Rocks, in particular, are very active and inquisitive birds that can get bored easily. Lots of room and things to do are essential for keeping them happy.
