    Hi Matt-----My 4 hens are free range and they basically do just that. They eat almost none of their feed in the spring and summer. When winter is here, there is less to find and they begin eating their feed again.

    yes they can. .that's free ranging

    but depends on how much grass, weed and bugs are available

    if you live in some ACRE of lands and only have XX number of chickens then there should be plenty.. if not provide their main feed just in case they didn't forage enough for the day
