    My son went away and left me in charge of the chickens. They had someone feeding them but she didnt show up today. I went to the store and bought ;chicken feed and special other stuff. How much layer pellets do I feed 5 chickens per day?
    Thanks......

    Just give them a big or box full of pellets and they will eat until they are full.
    Do you have any pictures (just for fun)?

    Chickens don’t really over eat, so just fill up the feeder. The exact amount however, is about a quarter pound per bird.

    Just give them several handfuls on the ground in their cage. If they still seem hungry give them more. If they are hungry they will eat extra fast and make a little more noise than usual.

    Hello, and welcome! Glad that you joined! It's good that you took over and got them some layer pellet's. If you need to know anything else about them, this is the place to find out.
