I have 2 Bared rock chickens about a year old. They were eating about the equilevent to 2- 600 ml pop bottles of feed per day. About a week ago they started eatin ALOT more. Like tripple that amount. I have had to fill the feeder 2 per day sometimes 3 times. It has not realy got any colder than before ( i did notice they eat more when it gets cold) But if any thing it has been warmer than 3 weeks ago. The only change or thing that happened that i can think of is i ran out of food for them on a sunday and could not get food til monday afternoon so they went just under 24 hrs with no food. This is not going to kill them but i am wondering did this cause them to start competeing for food. If not any other ideas why the drastic increse and should i give them a set amount??
Any help would be great
