Do you guys keep your birds on a strict feeding regiment---same time every day. A buddy and I are keeping an egg laying flock and he was aggravating me today about keeping the birds on a strict schedule. He's raised dogs before and that's how he did with them. I've raised chickens for 35 years and have never had any particular schedule, just some in the morning whenever I decide to walk down there and some in the evening before roost time. I have no intent to change, just wondering what y'all did. Should have added, I'm talking feed, water is there 24-7. They are let out to free range in the morning and locked back into the secure run at dusk.
