    I Have 200 Free Range Chickens And Am Curious What Is The Average Amount Of Food They Should Be Consuming? How Many Pounds Of Food Should They Be Going Through Every Month? Thank You All For Your Help.

    About 5 pounds per chicken per month. Is that about right?

    Mine free range a lot, and they go through about a pound per chicken per week. Maybe a little more lately since it has been cold. So five pounds a month sounds about right to me.
