    What do you do? I’m just curious. Everybody keeps saying they’re getting eaten out of house and home. Can you feed them a set amount or should they have free choice? Just questions from a mother hen....[​IMG]

    Maybe feed a set amount of the feed and let them free choice table scraps, grass and weeds, outer lettuce leaves, uneaten leftovers etc
