    Mine don't eat much at all... I don't know exactly how much (or how little) since they are in a mixed flock but they weigh next to nothing, a few bites and their crop is nice and full [​IMG]

    We have two silkies in their own coop. A 15-pound feeder lasts them more than 2-3 months, depending on how much they get to free range...and treats.
