Good advice so far. The short answer is you can't know how much hens will eat. As was said, how much they waste and how much they get from foraging will have a significant impact. Also, the size of the bird.
6 Jersey Giant hens will eat significantly more than 6 Seramas.
Bottom line is you have to keep food available all waking hours for best results.
