I'm new to chickens and I was wondering what should I feed my road island chickens and how much so I get best results. Thanks

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Depends on how old they are, usually you want to feed chicks a Chick Starter /Grower food and then change over to a Layer food when they are around 18 weeks old or they start laying eggs. Usually chickens are free-fed, or you keep food in front of them all the time. You might like to check out the BYC Learning Center, lots of good articles on all aspects of chicken keeping. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and Check out the BYC forum Feeding and Watering Your Flock for a lot of nice threads on feeding chickens www.backyardchickens.com/f/12/feeding-amp-watering-your-flock
