we have 40 chickens (hens and 4 roos) and they have access to a massive yard with tons of grass, dirt, bugs, water etc....but they are piglets. they eat SO much layer feed but we are hardly getting any eggs...granted about half of them are not quite to laying age (will be in a few more weeks) but we go through about 50# of layer feed (from the elevator) a week, what is up with that? Is this normal? If I give them less feed then they are basically attacking me throughout the day and as noisy as ever. if I start lowering the amount of feed I give them, will that be okay or is this normal?
