We have about 20 teenage chicks and 8 babies they go threw 40 lbs every 8-10 days and they free rang all day. We have 12 layers and 1 big roo and they go threw 40 lbs every 8-10 days and they also free range all day. I was thinking we were over feeding them as they have access to food 24 hours a day. I heard that some people only feed during the day but didn't know how I would accomplish that since they are wondering out in the yard. I still think they eat to much since they free range. what do you guys think? And if they are what would I do about it?
