    I was just curious if it is normal for some days for the chickens to not eat as much? I went to the coop this morn to let the girls out and refill the feeder and I noticed it looks pretty much the same as when I filled it yesterday not much was missing. Is this something I should worry about or maybe they just werent very hungry they did free range for a few hours and i had to trick them back into the run with some scratch but this morning was the first time in almost 13 weeks that I didnt need to fill the feeder.

    Sounds like they found all they wanted while out and about. That's one of the joys of free ranging, they find their own food.
