Here's a topic that is sure to bring some debate! Me and DW debate all the time about how much is too much and how much is too little. We have a small flock (7 birds). I give them 3-4 cups of pellets, 1/2 cup of either BOSS or scratch. If they have left over, either my lab finishes it for them, or they pick at it throuh the day(if am fed) or the next morning (if evening fed). DW says we are feeding them too much. When she feeds them, she gives them slightly less than I do (maybe 2 cups pell, .5 cup scratch). SO DEBATE AWAY BYC FRIENDS!!
