Hi everyone! So I have a small backyard flock of 4 hens, and have had the same amount for 3 years. However, I raised these hens and have never experienced chickens who eat as much as they do. They go through a 8 lb. bag of food every day. They are small breeds- 2 Cali Whites, 1 Australorp, and a Sex Link. They eat layer feed crumbles, and right now its winter, so they don't get out to scratch around... But still, doesn't that seem like a lot of food for 4 hens? I will fill it in the morning, and it will be gone by night. Thank you!
