    Let's ask this! I feed my chickens a pan of food in the morning and then another in the afternoon. They have water at all times. I give them Laying Pellets. Is this O.K.

    As long as they're not Cornish X meat birds it's next to impossible to overfeed a chicken. [​IMG]

    LOL - I, too, wondered since when a flock included cattle!

    My birds are spoiled.. They get stuff almost 24/7. Their like some people who can eat so much food but never gain a pound! I wish I was like them

    A laying hen should have food free choice 24/7

    Leghorns should be skinny, and lay a white egg. Not anorexic skinny, but not plump enough for you to think," that bird would look good in a frying pan."
