    Since i have been letting my flock free range for about 2 hours a day i have noticed they haven't been eating their feed as much. Is this normal? I'm thinking it's because they are grazing on the grass and eating bugs and worms.

    You are right! That's one of the nice things about free ranging. Saves you a bit of money on feed.[​IMG]

    I've also noticed this they seem ok though so I don't worry about it.
