I'm new to this... I ordered 25 broilers from Meyers hatchery as a project for myself and my kids. We built an outdoor coop 8x10 fenced run with an 8x3 coop. We received the chicks on September 5th. I started brooding in my garage bay with a large cardboard box. Pine shaving and all that. First week i fed them first thing in AM with about 6 cups food in feeder. and again in PM about 6 cups of food. They never seemed to run out completely. Week 2: i doubled the food amount to about 24 cups. again 24x7 twice daily. Never ran completely out. Week 3: They stunk the garage up so bad that at 2.5 i placed outside in the coop. I now give them 12 cups AM and by the time i get home from work its gone. So I give another 10-12 cups. I check at dark (9-10PM) and its all gone. Now i have read not to give them 24 hrs at 3 weeks so i let them go until morning. But when i feed them in the AM they go nuts with the food! So....should i give them even more food? Should I feed around the clock. 3 weeks will be up this Thursday. I have almost gone through 100lbs of food for 26 chickens. just curios of how much i should be feeding. Thanks!
