I am new to chickens and am hoping someone can help me figure out my food situation. I currently have 3 bar rock/orphington mixes and 4 rescue boilers. I have been going out twice a day and scattering their food because I'm worried if I free feed them the broilers will just sit and eat, and eat, and eat . I just started them on a diet of: 7 cups wheat (I just started my first batch of fodder so we'll see how that turns out) 3.5 oats 3.5 split peas 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds 3/4 dried meal worms They've been on this new feed for almost a week now and I'm noticing feed building up on the ground. I'm confused because I see them going crazy pecking at the ground when I scatter it and so I don't know why there's so much left behind. Do they not like it, or am I over feeding? They also have a large grassy area they hang around in that's roughly 15 x 20 and I have compost in the corner of their covered run. Any help would be appreciated!
