    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Most people "free feed" their flocks....just leave the feed out and they eat as much as they need during the day. Much easier so you don't have to tend to them as much. If you want to hand feed them a certain amount, you might ask this question in our Feeding and Watering your Flock for more help on exact amounts for this sized flock...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/12/feeding-watering-your-flock

    So glad you could join our community and enjoy your wonderful flock!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! X3 on TwoCrows advice. Most people free feed their birds (including me). There are only a couple cases when you don't want to feed birds continuously.
