Every time I go into the backyard I'm instantly mobbed by our little flock. They all come running from across the yard once I'm spotted and follow me where ever I go. We currently have 21 hens and 1 rooster. They are fed layer pellets every morning. They get 1/4 lb per chicken per day minimum as they get another scoop in the afternoon because we're suckers and worry that they're hungry. They get a treat each afternoon also, ranges from veg, rice, yogurt, fruit, etc. They are also completely free range all day so there is a constant buffet of grass and bugs available to them.
Does anyone have an opinion or expertise in determining if they are indeed hungry or just little pigs?
