    I have some pearl white leghorns and rhode island reds...
    they are about 15 weeks old.
    How much food do you think I should give them a day?
    or should I just have a feeder that has an endless supply of food for them?

    Endless supply. Fill when needed. Make sure it's layer pellets when they're laying! Also supply free choice oyster shell.

    Yep, the endless feeder works best for everyone!

    My birds have access to feed, water, free choice grit and oyster shells 24/7.

    Here is a picture of one of my coops.
