I have 6 Buff Orpingtons, all are almost a year old. I have been concerned about their weight because my rooster seems to be gaining a lot of weight. I refill their food whenever it is empty, should I only feed them a certain amount of food a day? They still lay eggs, and they do not have any change in behavior. My rooster recently had some behavioral problems, but we fixed that so he doesn't attack me anymore. We use this food, is it healthy for them? https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/tractor-supply-dumor-16-layer-pellet-50-lb-3006319-206 They have grit in their food, and I often give them table scraps mostly including broccoli and cucumber peels. I know which foods they cannot eat, and I am careful about choking hazards in the run. Any suggestions of what I should do?
