I know what I want to do about it, just don't know if it would be ok to do or not. It seems like the chickens eat what they forage most of the day anyway. Would it be ok to take the feeder away any time they are not locked in the coop? That would be like after 7-8 in the morning until 6 or so at night. We have about 16 birds now and 1/3 acre of grass/weeds/snails etc. Doable or big mistake?
