    More than they would of a balanced diet. A large chicken (ieRIR) eats 1/4 to 1/3 pounds of food a day, bantams less. I'd definitely get them a more balanced diet.

    Sounds a little light. I don't really know. I know that bucket is about 20 lbs. or that scoop is around 2. If you want to know best thing to do is find a scale. But maybe someone else on here knows.
