    Should I fill the feeders and keep a steady supply of food for my chickens or feed them once or twice a day? I have lost 3 hens in the past couple of months that were very large so I'm wondering if I'm over feeding them,,, [​IMG]

    I feed mine in the morning, & again in the evening. I put enough down to where it takes about 5 minutes to clean up.
