question. how much chicken feed should 28 chickens go threw about a month? my friend has 50 chickens he claims his chickens go threw a 50 pound bag a month...i dont see how he must be under feeding his chickens becuz of right now we've gone threw 5 50 pound bags of feed so far and we need to get another one and the month isnt over yet. so am i over feeding my chickens? there not huge. so how much should 28 chickens be going threw a month theoretically. btw we feed ours laying mash. whatever brand the feed store has. is that our issue?
