I have 18 hens. All look healthy and happy, poop looks normal. I've noticed some are moulting. My husband fills their feeder, and has mentioned that they seem to be eating a lot. I didn't think too much of it. Yesterday I filled their 5 gallon waterer and this morning I would say there maybe is 2 gallons left. I also put...hmm, maybe 10-15 pounds of food in their feeder, and it's almost gone. In the past when I fill their waterer, it would last a good part of a week. Their feeder holds about 30 pounds of food, and that would last...maybe a week to 10 days. They are confined, so they don't get to freerange more than a couple times a month (waaay too many predatory birds that have taken up residence in the woods behind our house). I am just posing this question because something seems to have changed. Like I said, they all seem happy and healthy--It's just that they seem to be inhaling the food and water at a pretty fast rate. Suppose this is normal? Thanks for your help!
