    I've decided to over-Winter my 3 Pilgrims. Any idea how much feed per bird, per day I should be planning on?
     
  2. I thought geese/ducks/chickens didnt eat themselves to death so all you had to do was give them 24/7 food?

    If on good pasture , nothing;0) But if not . 1/2 lb roughly, if you feed fine stemmed hay or suppliment with fruits and vegetables, you can cut back some.
