I'm trying to figure out how much I should feed my free range (free range-daylight to dark) chickens. If I keep free choice food out they lay more but it also seems that they hang around the coop and don't go "scrounge" around for much of their "living". I'd like to get the most eggs for the least amount of feed and have them free range for as much of their feed as possible. What are those of you who free range doing? If it helps I'm feeding a 20% layer feed.
