    I've heard that the food will go off if you put too much in the feeder. It takes my seven chickens about 2 weeks to go through their food. Is this too long to be sitting in the Florida heat and humidity?

    Are they still eating it after 2 weeks? Does it look OK to you? If so, I'd say that what you're doing sounds fine.

    If it's not moldy or wet, should be just fine.
