    As much as they want.. Daily I am going through at least a 16 oz cup of starter and 4 oz of scratch for 5 6-8 week olds plus treats.... I think I have to raise that some more as they are going through it. They now have 2 feeders since I integrated them last night so I will be able to fed more at a time.

    Agreed on feeding them as much as they want. Fill up a big feeder and they will take all they need. Make sure also to have a good supply of clean water always available. When they are on the roost, they will not eat and drink, but will want to begin again at dawn.
