    How often are we suppose to feed the chickens, Mine are full grown and I feed them twice a day once in the morning and once in the evening. Is that to much? I have been told it is.

    They should pretty much have all the food they can eat. How many times you have to feed them will depend on how much you put out at a time and how many chickens you have. Bin feeders can feed them for days without your intervention. While if your just throwing a scoop out you might have to do it several times a day. Lots of people feed them mostly in the evening during the winter so they stay full and generate more heat over night.
