I've been feeding my free-range chickens every evening to get them back in the hen house so that I can close them in for the night. They drive me crazy though, any time after 3 PM (now 2 since we turned the clocks back!) they follow me everywhere and won't leave me alone!! Even when I feed them, some will still follow me around. They get under my feet and I can't get anything done! I'll walk down the driveway and I hear chicken foot steps behind me. When I turn around, there is about ten of them stalking me again! I've decided to fill their tube feeder full and see what happens. I don't know if they will waste it or not? Which method do you prefer? Do they waste more when the feeder stays filled all the time? They are leaving me alone now, and have stopped stalking me so much and they do still go in the hen house at night. So what is the best feeding method in your opinion??
