We have a flock of layers that have a large run but do not free range at all. We bought a large feeder at TSC and fill it daily sometimes twice daily with scratch and laying mash. We also give them greens (grass, dandelions, etc) daily. They get oyster shells every other day to supplement for their egg laying. Occasionally we will give them various treats but never any large amount. We have a total of 8 hens ( 4 golden comets, 1 jersey giant, 2 leghorms and game hen) They are laying pretty much daily with the exception 2 that seem to be every other day right now. My question is they seem to be eating the entire container of feed and sometimes 2 daily. We usually throw out a handful on the ground too. This just seems like an awful lot in reading the other posts. Our leghorns are enormous in that one looks like she waddles rather than walks!! the others are healthy but not too bad yet. Is this too much or just right?? Any suggestions are appreciated.
