I have sixteen birds ten new hampshire chicks and six ducks, that are ten weeks old, and all allowed to prowell the yard during the day. How much comercial feed should they be getting? They currently split a gallon a day with poultry conditioner added every third day.

laying hens will eat a quarter to a third of a pound a day. i dont know the amount ducks eat.


i just fill my feeder completely full whenever they get empty and it works fine and i have 21 chickens and 2 ducks...they aren't fat and dont seem to overeat
