    They will regulate their amount of eating so can will learn from them - how much is leftover and reduce the amount next day.

    It's only meat birds that will eat and eat constantly and may need to be monitored so they live a little longer. They are generally processed at about 8-10 weeks of age their growth is explosive.

    G’Day from down under trail02 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some great advice, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
