    How often? Right now we are feeding them constantly... is this ok or should we be feeding them at certain times? :confused:

    If they are chicks they should have full feed constant. At least that is what I have read.

    i always keep their feeder full.....and once they are moved outside, I use a large bulk type feeder that holds enough food for the week.

    At what age do you quit feeding them the chick starter food and feed them the layer food?

    I started my chickens on layer feed right after they started laying eggs.
